Lump Hammer Failure


IMCA Safety Flash featuring several alerts highlighted by IMCA. A few of these alerts were originally shared by MSF and have previously featured in DROPS forums but we wish to highlight one incident in particular – the failure of a lump hammer. The head and the shaft parted resulting in a potentially fatal dropped object. Investigations found that the hammer was not specifically designed for use at height.
