Catwalk Leveling Jack Dropped on Worker's Foot


A crew was in the process of rigging in a third-party hydraulic catwalk. A worker was positioned at the end of the pipe swing arm support (swing arm) to pull it away from the catwalk. As the swing arm was pulled away, it suddenly dropped approximately two feet and the leveling jack struck the top of the worker’s foot above the toe protector area. The worker sustained a fractured foot.
