Abstract: At approximately 6:00 a.m. on August 23, 2011, an employee, galley hand or cook's helper, living and working aboard the steel, uninspected work barge number OU-744, VIN: CG047584, did not report to the breakfast shift. After an extensive search of the vessel, he was presumed to have fallen overboard. The accident was reported to Coastal Catering's HSE office at 7:15 a.m., and HSE Supervisor reported this apparent drowning to the Baton Rouge OSHA Area Office in the early afternoon on August 23, 2011. The employee's body surfaced in the Mississippi River near the work barge at 10:30 a.m. on August 24, 2011. Again, Coastal Catering's HSE Supervisor reported this to the Baton Rouge OSHA Area Office, but he was referred instead to the Jackson, MS Area Office. The employer was contracted to provide one cook and one galley hand to the barge's owner.
