MSHA Fatality - Final Report Issued - February 26th

MSHA Fatality - Final Report Issued - "On February 26, 2023, a contract miner died while operating a bulldozer. The bulldozer traveled over the edge of an access road and rolled feet down an embankment, ejecting the miner from the operator's cab. The miner was not wearing a seatbelt.

Best Practices:

  • Always wear a seatbelt when operating mobile equipment. Monitor work activities routinely to ensure miners wear seatbelts and follow safe work procedures.

  • Examine ground conditions before beginning work and remain alert as conditions change throughout the shift.

  • Train miners on the equipment they operate, including safe work procedures, and to identify and report hazards.

  • Always be aware of your position relative to roadway edges and benches."
