Text For Citation: 01 Item/Group: 001 Hazard: NMAC Section 50-9-5(A), NMSA 1978 (New Mexico Occupational Health and Safety Act): The employer did not furnish employment and a place of employment which were free from recognized hazards that were causing or likely to cause death or serious physical harm to employees. The hook used to hoist the flange on the well head did not have a safety latch or other device to prevent accidental release of the load. The metal hook used on the hoisting chains detached causing the flange to fall resulting in a worker's fingers being amputated. American Petroleum Institute (API) Recommended Practice 54, paragraph 9.7.3 states that the hoisting hook shall be equipped with a safety latch or other equivalent device to prevent accidental release of the load being hoisted or lowered.
