The family of a man who died days into his new job said he ‘lived life to the full’.
Nigel Hall, aged 47, died after being struck on the head by a six tonne piece of metal as it was being moved by an overhead crane at ATI Allvac in Brightside, Sheffield, in August 2011.
Last week a jury returned a narrative verdict at his inquest.
The father-of-two had only recently started working as a trainee melter at the company, having changed career after working as a draftsman previously.
The family of Mr Hall, who lived in Ferndale Drive, Bramley, Rotherham, said: “Nigel always lived life to the full.
“He was a son, brother and father who adored his sons and his family. He had recently become engaged to his partner of five years and was looking forward to a new stage in his life. He is sorely missed and loved by all.
“We were pleased with the outcome of the inquest, and want to thank all the people who contributed in a positive way to its rightful conclusion.”
