  9. 9. Restricted 9 Hand Safety HOW DO HAND INJURIES HAPPEN? • The analysis of how hand and finger injuries happens shows the most common as: - Being hit by moving objects, or - Hitting objects with part of body
  10. 10. Restricted 10 Hand Safety WHY DO HAND INJURIES HAPPEN? The primary root causes identified for hand and finger injuries are: • Inattention or lack of focus • Inadequate assessment of risk • Cutting corners / rushing. Mistaken priorities - safety versus objectives. • Lifting / applying force incorrectly • Using the incorrect tool for the job
  11. 11. Restricted 11 Hand Safety WHY DO HAND INJURIES HAPPEN? Even when people seem to know of the existence of these dangers, hand and finger injuries still happen. ??? WHY ??? “It won’t happen to me!” “I have been doing it that way for years!!” “There isn’t a better way.” “It is faster this way.” and more …
  12. 12. Restricted 12 Hand Safety WHAT IS THE KEY TO PREVENTION? • UNDERSTAND the task you are about to start. If you have any doubts, ask questions. • Be aware of all the possible hazards, assess the risk and then control them – it will help save you a lot of potential pain. • THINK for yourself if the procedure for the task is correct and the best practice. • FEEDBACK to your work mates, friends and managers your discoveries. You might just save someone else's finger.
  13. 13. Restricted 13 Hand Safety What is the Key to Prevention? !!! YOU !!!

  27. 27. Restricted MTC-FINGER LACERATED WHILE WORKING WITH DRILL PIPE Preliminary Information Points:  Prior to starting work, the workers reviewed the JSA for laying down drill collars.  The JSA does not address the associated hazards of manually rolling pipe on pipe racks, such as incorrect body position and specific pinch points.  The manifold building is close to the pipe rack and interferes with pipe movement if pipe is not aligned correctly on the rack.  The worker did not recognise the hazard of body position and pinch points.  Emergency Response Procedures were effective in getting the IP proper and timely medical treatment. What happened: Two experienced workers were rolling a 6 1/4 drill” collar on pipe racks. Each worker was standing at opposite ends of the collar. They were attempting to align the collar on the pipe rack so that the collar would pass by an adjacent manifold building. The injured person (IP) was rolling the pipe toward the catwalk using his shoulder to gain momentum with his hand on the pipe rack. The collar unexpectedly shifted back toward the IP, pinching his finger between the pipe rack and collar. This caused a laceration to his finger. The IP received 14 stitches to the left pinky finger and returned to work. This Early Information Bulletin provides preliminary information; a detailed investigation is pending.

  29. 29. Restricted MTC – LACERATED FINGER – DRILL BIT FELL ON WORKER’S HAND Fountain # 608972 Location: Canada - GroundBirch - Drilling Date: 08 Jan 2011 Preliminary Information Points: • Due to winter weather, snow had been tracked into doghouse creating a slippery floor. More frequent floor mopping is required during these weather conditions. • The standard procedure was for drill bit inspection and gauging to be done with the bit resting on the doghouse workbench. This could also be done with the bit resting on the floor. • The IP attempted to lift a 200mm bit that weighs over 60 kg (130 lbs). This weight is too heavy for one person to manage safely. • The worker was wearing Green King gloves. The use of Impact gloves may have minimised injury to finger (impact reduction gloves are on back order). What happened: An experienced worker was attempting to lift 200mm (7 7/8”) drill bit from doghouse floor onto a tool bench for inspection of jets and for gauging. When the injured party (IP) began to lift the drill bit, his feet slipped, causing him to fall. The drill bit fell with the IP to the floor, landing on the IP’s hand causing a laceration to his left ring finger. The worker was treated by the onsite medic and transported to the local medical treatment facility by his supervisor, where he received 4 stitches to his finger.

  30. 30. Restricted MTC – EMPLOYEE’S HAND CAUGHT BETWEEN ESCAPE POD AND MONKEY BOARD Fountain #: 612264 Location: US-PA Date: 18 Jan 2011 Preliminary Information Points: • The pinch point hazard was not identified in the JSA. • Lack of hazard awareness – Employee was not aware of the “stored energy” when lifting the pod. • The job was being performed by one employee. This should have been a two-person job. • Employee was wearing regular cotton gloves, not impact resistant gloves. What happened: An employee was in the process of lifting the pins to set the monkey board escape pod in place when the right hand became caught between the escape pod and monkey board. The employee was transported to a local medical facility for examination. X-rays confirmed that the employee’s right index finger had sustained a hair line fracture.

EIB Template 27 Aug 2010 UA Onshore Gas Wells Early Information Bulletin Fountain #: 615692 Location: US – S. Texas Date: 28 Jan 2011 What Happened: While in the process of nippling up the BOPE’s orbit valve 6” x 8’ steel line, rig crew was attempting to re-position the line due to its not being aligned properly (two-holed) with the flange. The Injured Person (IP) removed the last bolt and nut holding the steel line flange and pulled the steel line back. In the attempt to line up the steel line flange, the wire rope cable utilized in rigging slid towards the IP’s left hand, which was positioned under the steel line, and pinched the left ring finger and middle finger. IP was wearing impact resistant gloves, but the wire rope cable penetrated the glove. First aid was immediately administered at the location. Contractor management then made the decision to transport the IP to a medical facility for further treatment. Injury resulted in sutures to the IP’s left hand ring and middle fingers. IP-Point of Contact With Cable
  32. 32. Restricted Fountain #: 618755 Location: US Rockies Date: 2 Feb 2011 MTC-WORKER PINCHED THUMB WHILE STACKING CRIBBING UNDER PIPE Preliminary Information Points:  JSA was not completed for task, even though this was a change in job scope.  Task was discussed by workers prior to starting, yet no hazard recognition was involved.  Workers felt that with the empty line there was no real issue or hazard with short task, as they perform task often to level or drain lines.  Cribbing shifted when the line’s full weight was set down due to unstable ground and ice.  Worker jerked thumb when pinched, pulling glove off and causing majority of injury to thumb.  Temperatures were below zero.  Crew was 1 hour from crew change. What happened: Worker was stacking cribbing under 6 in. aluminum pipe. When worker advised crew members to lower the pipe onto the cribbing, worker’s right thumb was pinched in between the blocks. As the pipe was set down, the cribbing blocks shifted. Worker pulled thumb out of pinch area. Result was broken bone at tip of thumb and stitches were required.

  33. 33. Restricted RWC – LACERATED HAND WHILE WASHING OUT DRILL PIPE Preliminary Information Points: • No specific or adequate JSA or TRIC card was developed for this specific task. • Impact resistant gloves were not worn. • All workers to be clear of pinch points, prior to operate top drive. • Ensure JSA or TRIC card are in place, including a discussion to address Hands On - Hands Off and specific pinch points potential areas. • Ensure proper maintenance of critical component. • Verify/inspecting equipment. • Investigate new design to protect the driller’s console from surrounding elements. RWC - LACERATED HAND – After finishing a cement job, the crew was tripping out of the hole. Between joints, a worker was washing out drill pipe when the driller had lowered the top drive to prepare the next joint. When he released the top drive control lever, ice that had built up on the lever mechanism caused the lever to not auto-retract into the neutral position. This resulted in the top drive’s continuing to lower toward the table, where it made contact with the water wand. The injured worker was holding the wash wand when his hand was pinched between the handle of the wand and the drill pipe. The worker suffered a laceration and a hairline fracture to the top of the hand. This Early Information Bulletin provides preliminary information; a detailed investigation is pending.

Contractor procedure is 50lbs per man for manual lifting (cribbing weighed140lbs). • Crew did not recognize alternative method of lifting cribbing material. What happened: The crane crew was in the process of re-arranging equipment associated with the coil tubing operation and workers decided to relocate a 6"x8"x8' piece of cribbing (weighing 140lbs.) to another location. Co-worker lifted one end of the cribbing to allow for the injured worker to place hands under the other end. As the injured worker grasped the cribbing and started lifting the end, the co-worker’s end came out of his hands. The cribbing fell to the deck and caught the injured worker's left middle finger in a pinch point between the cribbing and the solid steel deck of the pipe rack area. The injured worker reported the incident to supervisor and medic for treatment of laceration to end of finger.
