Worker injured finger during shackle removal on excavator

Published on 17/05/23 164 Views 1 likes

Three workers were removing a screw pin from a shackle attached to an excavator. During the process, a worker put pressure on the shackle to help steady it but lost his grip, pinching his fingers between shackle and the attach point on the excavator.

Ask yourself and your crew:

  • How can something like this happen here (e.g. on our site)?
  • What safety measures (i.e. procedures, controls/barriers) do we have in place to mitigate the risk?
  • How do we know the risk controls/barriers are working?
  • What improvements or changes should we make to the procedures, controls/barriers or the way we work?
