Was up until yesterday PM and dive supervisor on a project in Kent. I was removed from the vessel by the boat owner after I raised an issue that the owner was 100% unsafe. Bottom line is he removed me from his vessel as I wouldn't let him/stopped him from slinging 6ft high O2 cylinders on a HIAB using a tiny wire strop (not designed for the job) over people's heads. He then threw his toys out of the pram when I calmly pointed out his ways and he lost the plot. I have the companies backing I was sub contracted to, in fact amongst other things they are considering suing him for breach of contract as he never even turned up today. My question is as I am self employed can I take him to small claims for loss of earnings? I am unable to gain employment as he doesn't want me on his tug but this is because I raised on a few occasions his horrendous safety record. Any thoughts? Anyone had something similar?
