MSHA July 17, 2023 Fatality - Fatality Alert

"On July 17, 2023, a miner died while performing repairs on a gyratory crusher. When a component was being suspended by a crane, a lifting eye welded to the component broke free striking the miner.

Best Practices:

  • Ensure that all miners stay clear of stored energy while performing repairs.

  • A certified welder should weld any lifting eye and ensure the welding rod is suitable for the materials joined together.

  • Examine lifting equipment and connection points for cracks or deformation prior to lifting.

  • Use low energy ropes and straps to minimize rebound effects when objects break."
