Description of Incident
A Quick Actuating Closure (QAC) lid weighing 15.8 kg fell to a skid platform below from a height of 2.3 metres. The lid is part of a Triethylene Glycol (TEG) particulate and was open to allow for a change. An operator was working in a bunded area in close proximity to the drop zone, with no barricading (not on the skid itself, under the load) while waiting for the vessel to drain. A combination of the component mass and height of the drop had the potential to cause a fatality.
