Falling Objects & Equipment

Were You Hit by Unsecured Equipment?

Safety harnesses aren't just for oil and gas workers. Harnesses, netting and other barriers should also be used to keep objects and equipment from falling. Equipment and machinery are always being moved overhead on oil rigs. If machinery or equipment is left improperly secured, oil and gas workers are at risk of getting struck and seriously injured by falling objects.

No Excuse for Falling Objects/Equipment

Supervisors and managers have a responsibility to ensure that oil and gas workers stay safe on the job. Much of that responsibility comes with very little room for mistakes. A lapse of attention or poor judgment can cause an accident. And then there are those mistakes that happen because of an ongoing safety issue — like lack of harnesses, or because of defective safety equipment or improper maintenance.
