Access hatch lid damper

A chief engineer suffered injury when an access hatch lid dropped on his toes. The lid dropped suddenly when a sling parted. Since the incident, a piston-type damper (shock absorber) has been fitted to the hatch lid to ensure that it always closes at a slow and controlled rate. Various images below illustrate the damper which will prevent sudden closures of the hatch lid and possible personal injury incidents. Click on an image to enlarge.
