MSHA January 4, Fatality Alert



"On January 4, 2023, a miner was fatally injured while performing maintenance inside a jaw crusher. The pitman assembly (moving jaw) rotated, pinning the miner against the crusher housing.


Best Practices:


block machinery components against motion before beginning maintenance or repairs;


position miners in a safe location and away from potential pinch point areas;


conduct repairs according to manufacturer's recommendations; and develop procedures for working safely in confined spaces."
