Adding Injury to Insult!? So the gits videoed your (patently inadequate) training, mocked you on Youtube and in front of your peers, before placing you in harm's way?

wiLlfish has a retained solicitor - would you like his number?

if anchor handler wasn't out on a job I'm sure my finger would be in the photo gallery by now

has to be said though, I've been well looked after by the company, hopefully not too much nerve/tendon damage. gutted i got through 20 years of steel industry fairly unscathed then go work on a boat for a week and this happens!

No amount of hard hats or high vis jackets would have helped you this time, so still no point in changing a habit of a lifetime . Some kind of pilot boat initiation I 'spose.

eek I was too scared to look, didn't realise it was that bad! Had surgery on damaged nerves etc, full recovery expected by the surgeon. Waiting for my flight home now so I can be waited on hand and foot

Correct ppe was worn (gloves) but as i said previously, most ppe does feck all when you really need it. Common sense had kept me out of trouble the last 20 years, just happened to elude me this time round!
