Worker Injured in Barge Fall

A Trinity Marine worker sustained serious injuries in a fall last month. The worker was about 15 feet from a barge. The fall occurred at a Trinity Marine facility in Ashland City in Tennessee. According to local fire personnel, the man was taken to hospital with injuries.

In November 2010, a Trinity Marine worker was killed in a maritime workplace-related incident when the worker was found lying on the ground bleeding from the head.  He was rushed to the hospital, but was declared dead on arrival.

Trinity Marine received at least five OSHA citations from the agency this year, all related to the November death.  It was the third workplace-related death  at Trinity Marine in thirteen years.  Those deaths included one in July 1997, and a fatal electrocution in June 2000.
