Alert 98 – 25 Full Body Harness Safety

When the derrickman latched the elevators around the pipe, the two-inch D-ring on the front of his body harness got caught on the horn (handle) of the elevators. Fortunately, the derrickman was able to knock the ring loose from the horn before an accident occurred.
