Alert 09 – 17 Near Miss-New Fall Protection Equipment Failure
A derrickman was working in the derrick and was using a NEW “Pass through Tie-Off Adapter” for his fall protection anchor point. The tie-off adapter in this case was a 3” web sling, 2 feet long. The adapter is wrapped around a beam or other secure tie-off point and one end passes through the other “choking” the anchor point. The lanyard is then attached to a full body harness d-ring.
