Employee Dies In Fall From Pipe While Lowering The Wind Wall

On June 28, 2012, an employee and a coworker were lowering the wind walls on a d rilling rig, which was laid down and being prepared for transporting. The emplo yee and the coworker were lifted to the top of the mast by a forklift and man ca ge. The drilling rig was on its side and around 14-ft high. The wind walls had to be lowered for the rig to be made ready for travel. The panels are made of plate steel and steel stock as a frame. They are heavy and 8-ft by 8-ft in size . It required a couple of strong persons to unpin and lower the panels. There was no floor to work from. The employee and the coworkers had to walk on rounde d pipe, flat plate, and assorted piping and hoses. The workers got one panel un pinned and then went to lay it down. The employee lost his balance and went ove r the side of the mast. He hit the ground face first. The response of coworker s on site was slowed by lack of training, and lack of access to first aid kits a nd blood borne pathogen (BBP) kits. The employee was killed.
