Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 123056.015Event: 04/03/2019Employee Is Struck And Crushed By Life Boat Davit Arm
At 9:15 a.m. on April 3, 2019, Employee #1 was initiating the arc-welding to the davit #6 (a Harkrader Gravity Davit), manufactured by Marine Safety Equipment C orporation in 1985. The davit was located on the starboard side of the ship. W hen he setup the welder near the bottom of the davit, the wire rope holding the davit arm in place broke in two and the davit arm went from the "stowed" positio n to the swung-out position. When the wire rope broke, the davit arm swung down and struck the employee, killing him. According to the testing done by the Sa lt lake City Technical Center, the wire rope failed due to the electrical curren t that passed through it resulting in an electrical arc, which allowed the davit arm to swing down.
