Some Tragic News from Kefalonia Today

Early this morning a 40 year old father of 3 children died in a workplace accident at the landfill site near Lixouri, its still unclear if he was crushed or caught in  moving machinery either way a tragic waste of life and leaving a family without a husband and father.

Local authorities are investigating the incident now to find the root cause, having been involved in these investigations for many years myself before moving here its rarely “just an accident” there is usually a deeper cause than to simply blame the worker and whilst health and safety cuture is often derided in the UK, used correctly it is there to prevent such tragic incidents happening.

Its probably also a good reminder to us all, as we get out the strimmers, drills, stepladders and angle grinders that we all need to take care of ourselves as we get to work sorting out gardens and outside jobs.
