Lies about Shell safety record on Corrib Gas Project?
Oct 26th, 2012 by John Donovan.
I saw that you posted up the “Mayo Today” article entitled “Corrib safety clock hits three million hours mark”.
In the article Shell claim:
“The record was reached on October 4 and the workscope covered included all onshore pipeline and terminal activities, plus all offshore work managed out of Erris. This represented an incredible 833 days without a safety incident leading to a staff member or contractor having to take time off work due to injury – stretching back to June 24, 2010.”
This is a lie. I myself witnessed a Shell security guard being carried on a stretcher on a Shell site in January 2012.
I’ve also been contacted by an employee who told of two injuries on site that he knew of;
A female employee had her leg trapped by a steel gate at the Aughoose site in December 2011. This injured employee was off work for 4 or 5 months as a result of the incident.
A security guard injured his knee on the site around January this year.� He returned to work a few days later.
At the time of the first incident the employee said that they were handed jackets to wear with the 2,000,000+ hours worked without injuries even though their colleague was off duty at the time.
There have been a number of other rumored injuries on the Aughoose site in the last few months but nothing confirmed on these yet.
