Safety Alert for Completions Rig Work At Height

Graham Marshall - Wednesday, December 05, 2012

This safety alert from APPEA in Australia highlights how a Floorman went to the derrick monkey board to put a stand of drill pipe in the elevators.

He attached the hold back line but failed to transfer from the crown fall arrestor to the monkey board fall arrestor.

During the operation the blocks were lowered, snagging the secondary line.

This resulted in the Floorman being pulled forward onto his knees parting his lanyard.

Thankfully, no injuries sustained during the incident.

The investigation illustrated that the relevant procedure was not reviewed before task was performed.

The key learnings were identified as being the need to review procedure for the task prior to starting and to ensure procedures are up to date and include installing safety devices.
