Did you suffer a dredge accident?
Dredge Accidents happen because dredge work is physically demanding and dangerous. You likely work fourteen days on/fourteen days off or twenty-eight days on/twenty-eight days off, spending up to month away from home. You love the over-time, but working 12 hour shifts on rough water, at night or in bad weather, leaves you physically and mentally exhausted. You do this job because of the pay or because you love the job.
Dredge Accidents can be avoided:
While you give so much, the dredge company has certain obligations that it must uphold. It must provide a safe workplace, a seaworthy vessel, properly maintained equipment, good supervision, good training, and sufficient crew. When a dredge company fails to meet these obligations, serious accidents can occur.
