Mine Fatality - Final report issued for fatality on 6/22/2023

"On June 22, 2023, a contract bulldozer operator died when the bulldozer he was operating backed off the edge of a highwall. The bulldozer operator was clearing the bench in preparation for drilling and blasting and had removed the berms along the edge.

Best Practices:

Install berms, signs, or devices to identify the edge of benches.

Perform workplace examinations and correct hazardous conditions before beginning work and as ground conditions warrant. 

Train equipment operators to identify dangerous conditions and to keep the bulldozer blade between them and the edge near drop-offs."
