Alert 10 – 17 Windy Conditions Results in LTI
After the injured person (IP) finished his work in a tank he was going to the accommodation via staircase on the outside of the accommodation unit. On the last staircase and when approaching the top of the stairs, the IP felt his hardhat being lifted by the wind (wind speed was 40 to 45 knots) so he put both hands on his hardhat to stop it from blowing off. The IP then lost his balance and slipped down the stairs backwards, his feet bouncing on each step going down. He stopped at the bottom against life jacket box. The IP sustained a broken left foot and a sprained right ankle.
