The death of an offshore rig worker who was crushed by an electrical panel was accidental, an inquest concluded.
Tyron Jones, 43, from Lowestoft, died on 5 December 2016 at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital after the 1,400kg panel toppled on to him.
He was working on a gas platform in the north sea, about 70 miles (110km) off the coast, at the time.
Perenco, the company which operates the platform, said steps had been taken to prevent a similar incident.
The inquest at the Norfolk Coroner’s Court in Norwich heard Mr Jones and two other men were lift-testing when the incident happened.
He died from multiple injuries.
Duncan Adamson, from Perenco, said the company had already made improvements to avoid a similar incident in the future following a Health and Safety Executive investigation.
During the three-day inquest, it was heard Mr Jones was “extremely thorough and experienced”.
Perenco team leader Martin Francis told the jury the company had a “complex system of risk assessment”.
He said a piece of heavy electrical equipment “was not screwed into its crate and the authorised order of tasks was not followed” prior to Mr Jones’ death.
