Investigation report following lifting incident on Gullfaks A available in English

The Petroleum Safety Authority Norway’s (PSA) investigation report following the incident on Gullfaks A on 28 February 2011 is now available in English.


During a routing lifting operation on the Statoil-operated installation in the North Sea, a deck worker was crushed between two containers and suffered a broken left collarbone. The incident could have resulted under slightly different circumstances in a fatality.

A number of the identified deficiencies which led to the Gullfaks A incident have been seen in earlier audits/investigations involving logistics and mechanical handling on other Statoil-operated installations.
