Stork USA: Near Miss- Dropped Object 07-11-2012

On 7-11-2012 a group of workers were preparing to work in a confined space on an offshore platform.  Before starting work workers were sending up a pneumatic saw that weighed almost twenty pounds to the confined space attendant so that servicing could be performed on the saw.  A rigging line was sent down in the space and the saw was attached to the line with a nylon accessory cord.  As the saw was being lifted out of the space the accessory cord failed and the saw fell into the gulf.  No injuries resulted.
