Alert 03 – 18 Personnel Hoisting Incident


A Floorman was being raised into the Derrick in a man-riding belt to open the kill valve on the Flow Head. As he was attempting to install the valve handle, the rig heaved significantly causing the Carabiner to catch on the valve handle and be stretched until it broke. Although part of the primary assembly used for lifting failed, serious injury was prevented because the man was attached to and saved by the secondary fall protection.
