An investigation has been launched after a North Sea worker was exposed to radiation.
The incident happened 145 miles east of Aberdeen on the Lomond Installation.
The worker, who is employed by offshore firm Sparrows, has undergone medical evaluations both offshore and onshore and has been confirmed as safe from any potential harm.
A spokesman for Sparrows Group said: “We are relieved that following a thorough medical check, our employee is safe and well. He was carrying out a daily routine task within a rigging loft at the time of the incident. We will continue to work alongside the operator and other contractors as the investigation is carried out.”
Stork, which is currently overseeing an upgrade of the platform, said the incident occurred during a routine Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) inspection workscope which involved radiography techniques.
A spokesman for Stork said:”Stork can confirm that on Sunday the 15th of February, an incident occured on the Lomond installation.
“During a routine Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) Inspection workscope, involving radiography techniques, it is suspected that an offshore worker was found to be within a barriered off area, that was put in place as per permit to work processes.
“The individual has received medical evaluations both offshore and onshore and is confirmed to be safe.
“Stork is currently working closely with BG Group to conduct a full investigation.”
A BG spokesman said: “We are working with Stork and Sparrows to understand why the individual was located where he was and what process improvements are required in future. Most importantly we are pleased the individual is safe and well.”
Last year, workers had to be evacuated from the Lomond platform after a Norwegian vessel caught fire 14 miles away from it.
