Alert 02 – 07 Dropped Object from Derrick Results in LTI


While a floorman was directing the crane from the “V” Door, a 4’6” piece of 2” X 4” (weight approximately 40 pounds) tubing fell approximately 90’ from the derrick. The dropped object struck him a glancing blow injuring his hand. The dropped object was part of the framing for the wind wall tarps around the monkey board. Although the injured received stitches to his injured hand and was a lost time incident, this incident could have resulted in a much more serious injury.
