Abstract: Employee #1 was running a hydrotest on a pipe in the floor of a workover rig at a well. The weights on the counterweight arms were tied in a vertical position. The safety latch on the brake was not being used; the only brake holding the weights vertical was the ratchet brake inside the pump house, which was supposed to secure the counterweights for operational stops only. While the hydrotest was being conducted, the counterweight arms came down. Employee #1 was struck by the weights and killed.
