MSHA Fatality Alert

MSHA Fatality Alert - "On August 18, 2023, a section foreman was installing hose for a dewatering pump. He was found unresponsive lying in approximately eight inches of water and mud. The death certificate listed the cause of death as drowning.

Best Practices:

Provide and maintain safe access to all working places. Remove standing water where miners work and travel.

Ensure qualified electricians examine and maintain electrical equipment in safe operating condition; if equipment is defective, correct hazards or remove equipment from service.

Report and correct any slip, trip, or fall hazards."
