In fact, recent data compiled by USMX shows that 20% of all injuries on the waterfront were to lashers working on deck and one of the biggest hazards they face is that of dislodged, falling twistlocks. Some of these injuries can be severe, leading to long term disabilities and, as happens from time to time, some end up in court as the subject of third party litigation.
