A representative of the Steam Packet Company has apologised after a girl was injured on a vessel that allegedly did not have any safety signs.

The incident took place after passengers boarded a fastcraft in Dublin last week, and the organisation has now completed a review of the accident, which has led to the implementation of new safety measures, reports

A Steam Packet representative said: "A crew member directed these passengers towards the lift but appears not to have made it clear that the passengers should have first boarded the vessel at the designated foot passenger access point."

In addition, the spokesperson stated that the space where the young girl slipped is not wide enough for a person to fall through.

This incident comes after the Health and Safety Executive fined Townfield Manufacturing Co Limited after it did not adequately maintain its electrics.

The Oldham company was found to have left cracked socket casings near live wires.ADNFCR-2754-ID-800524025-ADNFCR
