Alert 06 – 37 Slips Knocked Over Resulting in LTI Foot Injury


Well testing had been completed and the operation at the time was pulling 4½ inch production tubing out of the hole in single joints. The rig had been pulling tubing for over 12 hours (6 hours on Injured Person’s (IP) tour and 6 on the previous tour). A cable from the Spider / Single joint elevators snagged the slip handles causing them to fall over striking the injured person on the upper foot, behind the steel toe cap of his boot. A fracture was found on the upper part of his right foot, resulting in an LTI.
