Police officials have raided five offices of Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) once again, following a crane incident at the shipbuilder’s Geoje yard which caused the deaths of six workers, Yonhap News Agency reported

In the incident which occurred on May 1, a structure fell from one of the cranes killing six workers and injuring some 25 workers following a collision between two cranes.

At the time of the incident, workers were finishing the construction of an oil platform for a French energy company scheduled for delivery in June.

On May 4, around 30 investigators were sent to confiscate workbooks and manuals on safety regulations and education in order to analyze the materials and investigate any potential negligence.

As informed, investigators now decided to raid the offices for the second time after analyzing the seized materials.
