A near miss incident occurred on a rig while the crew was tripping pipe into the hole. The Derrickman stepped onto the toe board and the board broke off, allowing the Derrickman to drop. Fortunately, his safety harness and lanyard arrested his fall and he was not injured. In addition, the safety chain on the toe board kept it from falling to the floor below. Inspection of the toe board revealed a bad weld on the toe board hinge had given way, allowing the toe board to collapse.
