Alert 19-02 Foot Fractured Caught Between Shifting Risers
The deck crew were in the process of placing a joint of high pressure slick line riser into a cargo basket. The cargo basket already had two riser joints in the bottom of the basket. After resting the riser into the container, the injured person (IP) and another crewmember entered the cargo basket to remove the slings. When the IP had finished removing his side of the slings, one of the bottom risers started to roll which caused the top riser to push against the other two below. The IP’s foot was between the two risers that were already in the cargo basket before they shifted. The IP sustained a fracture resulting in a recordable incident.
