An offshore worker died on board a diving support vessel in the North Sea after the most basic safety principles were ignored, a report has said.
Crewman David Stephenson, 44, of Willow Bridge, Northumberland, was crushed between equipment on the Well Servicer, operated by Technip, last April.
The Marine Accident Investigation Branch (MAIB) said lessons had to be learned from the accident off Aberdeen.
It has issued a safety flyer to the offshore support industry.
Mr Stephenson was airlifted to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary following the accident but was pronounced dead.
