[i][b]Effects of Hazard 4, Injury Resulting in Fracture or Flesh Wound[/b]
Involvement with the movement, emplacement, and/or erection of large and massive structures or instruments could lead to tip-over or collapse with resultant injuries to crew members involved in setting up these instruments / structures. Fractures or flesh wounds are likely in such events. Although suit rupture in such accidents is also possible, it should be recognized that fractures and bruises could occur without suit damage.
[b]Corrective Measures for Hazard 4
1. All of the preventive measures recommended for Hazard 3 are applicable.
2. The construction, erection, emplacement, etc, of all proposed lunar structures / instrumentation should be practiced on Earth without omitting any steps (i.e., a complete training program) in order to uncover any difficulties that could arise on the moon and thus correct them before the lunar mission is initiated.
1. A portable lunar shelter should be available in the event the subject emplacements are distant from the base so that a fellow astronaut can supply first aid in the event of accident. A cabin rover should be very suitable in lieu of a portable lunar shelter. Splints and other first aid items should be included as standard equipment in rovers and other lunar shelters.
[b]Escape/Rescue Requirements for Hazard 4[/b]
1. If an astronaut is seriously injured he will have to be brought back to the LSB or to the lunar space station or to Earth for treatment of his injuries.[/i]
