Alert 02 – 08 Improper Rigging Results in Lost Cargo


While making a lift from a boat to the platform, the operator picked up a cargo basket and proceeded to swing away from the boat. While swinging the basket, the cargo
suddenly shifted causing the O-ring on the latch side of the hook to pull through the latch. When the O-ring pulled through the latch, the two part sling came unhooked from the stinger and the basket dropped on one side resulting in dropping some of the cargo into the water. No injuries, but some of the cargo was lost.
