ExxonMobil Launches Investigation Into Near-miss Accident on Hebron Platform

An investigation has been launched into a near-miss incident on the ExxonMobil-owned Hebron Platform off Canada, according to FleetMon.

It stated: “Even though the incident on 14th September claimed no injuries, it had the potential to cause severe fatalities.

“The Canada-Newfoundland and Labrador Offshore Petroleum Board (C-NLOPB) in its press briefing about the accident said it occurred when the auxiliary hoist hook along the south intervention deck, weighing approximately 3.6 kg, fell five to six meters to the deck.

“The petroleum regulator also revealed that according to the Dropped Objects Prevention Scheme (DROPS) calculator, the accident had a high potential of causing multiple fatalities.

“The statement added that the incident occurred when preparations for an upcoming lift with no load connected were underway. It also confirmed that the only individual in the proximity of the falling hook was a hoist operator, who managed a narrow escape with no injuries as he stood six meters away.

“ExxonMobil on Thursday revealed that all auxiliary crane operations were suspended since the incident and an investigation had been launched into the root cause of the accident. The probe will be monitored by C-NLOPB.”
