BSI launched internal investigation into employee’s death

vlcsnap-2016-08-23-14h03m40s167On Friday we told you about the employee of BSI/ASR who died as a result of injuries received on the job site. 41 year old Ismael Jimenez, a father of 5, had been a mechanic with the company but on Friday he was somehow pinned while was using heavy machinery.  He was rushed to the Northern Regional Hospital where he had to undergo emergency surgery to control severe internal bleeding but died before he could be further transferred to the KHMH. The Belize Sugar Industries Ltd. (BSI) has since issued a press release expressing sadness at the tragic accident that took the life of Jimenez Jr.  BSI says Jimenez had  been a part of the BSI family since his employment in 2009. But his  connection to the company predates that, as his father, Ismael Jimenez Sr., has been employed with BSI since 1981 (approximately 35 years). BSI says it extends its sincere condolences to the bereaved family and friends of Ismael and has offered support and assistance to the family during this difficult time. The statement from BSI says ,“As part of the support, the company has engaged the services of a certified counsellor to support staff and also family members deal with the trauma of the loss. Following established procedures, BSI has launched an internal enquiry into the accident. At the same time, BSI is cooperating with all relevant authorities investigating this tragic accident.”
