Alert 11 – 08 Unsecured Guard Results in MTO
While investigating a noise coming from the liner of mud pump #2, the Injured Person (IP) picked up the pony rod cover for the port side pony rod (each pony rod has its own cover). The liner cover dropped and fell inside the area where the pony rods are. While the pump was still running, the IP tried to remove the cover and the pony rod pushed the cover, pinching his finger between the cover and the pump body. The end of the right ring finger was pinched, breaking the skin and required stitches to close the wound.
