One of my colleague shared this vdo in the HES meeting and I was stunning on how quick of this incident happening. This is very short VDO only 21 seconds but it is worth to learn to prevent this same situation.
What was happened?
The derrick attempted to move the air tuggers line which got caught in the fingerboard. He tried to move the line by applying force to move the line out and then the line came free and jumped from the fingerboard. However, the derrick man still held the line and he was pulled out of the fingerboard and fell down along the tugger line.
I don’t know much detail how he was doing after this but the points that I would like to share with you are as follows;
Always assess the situation prior to working on any task
Always have the safety harness tied with your body while working at height
Always be aware of surrounding and don’t become complacent because you have been working in the position for long time and you think you have a lot of experience on what you are doing
Always review work at height risk prior to and while working
What are your opinions?
