Worker fatally trapped in conveyor
This safety alert comes from an incident that resulted in a fatality. It occurred in the United States and, although we have different regulations covering snubbing equipment, we conduct comparable activities in Western Canada. Snubbing units are used for fishing, milling, drilling, side tracking or any task needed to remove bridge plugs, cement or deepen wells while the well remains live.
Snubbing is a high hazard activity and this safety alert is an opportunity to discuss similar hazards in Canadian operations with your workforce.
