Alert 98 – 32 Fatality – Crane Accident


An accident during crane operations occurred on an offshore platform tender drilling rig resulting in fatal injuries to a roustabout. The crane had picked up a bundle of tubing on the tender and had moved it to the platform catwalk. A roustabout who could not be seen by the crane operator was aligning the tubing. As soon as the load was aligned properly it was lowered to the catwalk striking the roustabout in the back and pinning him beneath it.
