Description of Incident

After a routine lift had been landed over the stern to a CTV foredeck, the CTV crew member gave the signal to raise the crane hook. While the hook was being raised, he stepped forward to guide the slings clear of snagging points on the CTV. A tag line attached to the slings snagged or became entangled on carabiners connected to his harness, and he was lifted about 0.5m clear of the deck. The lift was quickly stopped by the banksman, and the crewman lowered back to the deck unharmed within a few seconds.
