Mine Fatality Alert

Mine Fatality Alert – "On May 9, 2024, a miner died when he was pinned between the personnel lift that he was operating and the roof of a structure. The miner was tramming the personnel lift from the basket to conduct a roller repair on an elevated belt conveyor.

Best Practices:

Ensure miners maintain control of personnel lifts while in operation.

Use a spotter when moving mobile equipment in congested areas and around structures.

Monitor miners routinely to ensure miners follow safe work procedures while operating personnel lifts. 

Ensure miners are aware of their location in relation to nearby structures.

Conduct workplace examinations to identify and eliminate hazards before beginning work in an area.

Train miners in the safe performance of their tasks in accordance with the manufacturer's manual."
