Two die in Subic Hanjin accidents

SUBIC BAY Freeport: Another worker from the Hanjin Heavy Industries Corporation-Philippines shipyard died Wednesday after being flattened by a 250-kilogram duct.

Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority identified the victim as Jose Vener Gil, 42 of Subic, Zambales.

The report submitted by the Korean company to Subic Bay Administrator Armand Arreza said that Gil was unshackling the duct after painting work when it fell on him. He died on the way to the hospital, the report added.

Gil became the second fatality this month after another worker also died on November 20 in a vehicular accident.

Reports identified the November 20 fatality as Philip Mendoza, 40, of Castillejos, Zambales.

But Pyeong Jong Yu, deputy managing director of Hanjin-Phil, said the November 20 incident “was not in any way related to the shipbuilding operations, as the same was caused by a vehicular accident as a result of human frailty.”

Yu also said that Hanjin management would conduct a full investigation “to ascertain whether proper and enough measures are taken to ensure prevention of any further accident.”

He added that whatever the results of the probe, the Korean company would provide “reasonable financial support” to the victim’s family.

He also gave the assurance that Hanjin-Phil and its subcontractors “will exert their best efforts to make the Hanjin shipyard an accident-free workplace.”

Subic Bay management for its part said that they would also conduct a separate investigation on the case. By Anthony Bayarong, Manila Times
