Alert 07 – 25 Failure of Temporary Wireline Spool Stand Results in Caught Between Incident


While installing a ¾” cable from the shipping spool to the derrick gin pole, the pipe being used in the spooling rack to support the cable spool (axle) slipped off the rack causing the spool to fall to the deck.

This resulted in a partial amputation of the left little finger.
