[사회][앵커리포트] “Dive work in spite of water trauma…” Death of a high school student

On the 6th, Hong Jeong-woon, a high school senior, died in an accident at a yacht marina in Yeosu, Jeollanam-do.

While the memorial culture festival is held day after day, criticisms of being a talented person continue to rise.

Hong, who attended a specialized marine-related high school, was a field trainee at a yacht company.

While wearing diving equipment, I had a bowel movement while removing foreign objects such as barnacles from the surface of the yacht.

The question is whether the various regulations were properly followed during this process.

At first, Hong was in a situation where he was not allowed to dive.

Article 140 of the Occupational Safety and Health Act.

Harmful or dangerous work cannot be done without the necessary qualifications, licenses, and experience for the work. This includes diving work using equipment.

Hong had no relevant qualifications, licenses, or experience.

There is another problem. The two-person work, the placement of safety managers, etc. were not observed.

Above all, diving is prohibited for those under the age of 18, but Hong is 17 years old.

Criticism continued in the relevant state audit.

In 2012, a work boat overturned in Ulsan, killing 12 people, including field trainees at specialized high schools.

Even though the evacuation order was issued due to bad weather, the response was delayed, and the officials were convicted.

In 2017, a disaster occurred due to a malfunction of a presser during field training at a bottled water manufacturer in Jeju.

The Coast Guard has booked the representative of the yacht company in question without detention and is conducting an investigation.
