Dropped Valve Actuator

Graham Marshall - Sunday, April 07, 2013

This Woodside safety alert shows how a 200 kg valve actuator was able to fall a distance of 20 metres to the deck below the crane before falling over the side and into the ocean.

The safety alert highlights the need for good risk assessment prior to any lift, the development of an appropriate lift plan for the specific lift in question, and the need for any person directing the lift to be standing in a place of safety.

We would suggest that a lift such as this should also be covered under an appropriately written and specific procedure.
