MSHA Mine Fatality Final Report Issued



MSHA Mine Fatality Final Report Issued – "On September 1, 2022, a roof bolter was electrocuted when he contacted a metal hook that became energized after it penetrated the 480-volt cable that supplied electrical power to a roof bolting machine.

Best Practices:

Make sure miners use suitable, non-conductive ropes when pulling or handling electrical cables.

Never attach conductive parts, such as metallic hooks, to the portions of non-conductive ropes that contact electrical cables.

Make sure miners use proper Personal Protective Equipment when handling cables, such as insulated gloves."
