Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 200813012Event: 04/01/2010Employee Falls, Is Impaled By Debris And Killed
Employee #1 was working a rig to cement casings. Two valves were stuck on the cementing tree and would not rotate to "open". The casing was pressured up to 3,000 pounds. Employee #1 went up on twelve-foot ladder to hammer the valves. The second blow by the sledge hammer caused the valve to explosively open, releasing pressurized water. The water struck Employee #1, causing him to fall. The union may have struck and destroyed the ladder. Employee #1 fell and was impaled on ladder debris and killed.
