IADC has issued three new safety alerts citing potential rigfloor dangers and how each could have been mitigated. Each safety alert provides a description of the incident, the cause, and how it could have been avoided.
The latest safety alerts are:
• Near miss – damaged man-riding winch
• Improper use of drill pipe spinner results in an MTO (medical treatment only)
• Medical treatment only (MTO): Struck by the tongs
If your company experiences an accident, near miss, MTO, or other incident, please let IADC publish this. It could save a life!
All company and personal references are removed, so there are no worries about adverse publicity. IADC’s aim is to help the industry improve its HSE practices.
