Protest to commemorate 23 tradesmen who died in work related accidents

category dublin | worker & community struggles and protests | event notice author Monday April 24, 2006 16:47author by Jim Report this post to the editors

Protest 11.30 - 12.30 outside the offices of the Health and Safety Authority, Hogan Place.



On the 3rd of December 2002 Justin Foley, 21, was killed in an accident at work. This happened in Robinson's warehouse in the Ballymun Industrial Estate.

Justin worked for Davies Turner Transport. The loading bay on which he was standing was faulty - he had to stand on the driver's blind side while waving the articulated truck in. The truck reversed into him and he was caught between the truck and the wall. He was crushed to death and died instantly of severe traumatic brain stem injury.

The HSA were not present at the scene of the accident the day of the accident nor were they notified until the next day after - the scene was not preserved. Yet there was no prosecution for failure to notify.

The HSA did not take any action against the companies involved, which has forced the Foley family to take a civil case and to organise this demonstration which will include a minutes silence at 12.

BATU (The Builders and Allied Trades' Union) are taking part in order to commemorate the 23 tradesmen who died in work-related accidents in 2005.
