Alert 11 – 13 Rig Move – Caught Between Truck and Load
The rig moving crew was loading rig equipment in order to move to a new location. A Pre-Tour meeting had been held with both crews. A floorman (injured person [IP]) was caught between the generator house skid and the truck that was backing up to prepare to load the generator house. Another driver observed the IP caught between the truck and generator house and shouted for the truck driver to stop. Due to this driver’s attention, the IP avoided more serious injury. The IP was taken to the hospital for precautionary X-rays, which came back negative and he was released to return to duty. The worker suffered some pain at his chest area and minor bruising.
