A WORKER at Hinkley B cracked vertebrae after falling through a skylight at the nuclear power plant. EDF and contractor Doosan Babcock have been told they need to make improvements to safety after an investigation by the Office for Nuclear Regulation. The Doosan Babcock employee cracked vertebrae following the fall in April this year, and the following ONR investigation ‘revealed gaps in compliance of legal requirements by the licensee, EDF, and contractor Doosan Babcock’. Improvement notices have now been served to both companies. EDF confirmed the man is set to make a full recovery.
