  43. 43. METAL/NONMETAL MINE FATALITY - - On January 27, 2006, a 60-year old heavy equipment operator with 10 years mining experience was fatally injured at a crushed stone operation. He was operating a dozer to prepare a bench for drilling. The dozer traveled over the edge of a 50-foot highwall and fell to the quarry floor, submerging the cab in several feet of mud and water.
  44. 44. METAL/NONMETAL MINE FATALITY - - On January 27, 2006, a 60-year old heavy equipment operator with 10 years mining experience was fatally injured at a crushed stone operation. He was operating a dozer to prepare a bench for drilling. The dozer traveled over the edge of a 50-foot highwall and fell to the quarry floor, submerging the cab in several feet of mud and water. Best Practices Stop, Look, Analyze, and Manage (SLAM) each task to identify all potential hazards before performing work. Maintain and wear seat belts when operating machinery. Always keep the blade between yourself and the edge of the highwall when operating a dozer on the highwall bench. Operate equipment so that control is maintained. Reduce the throttle position and know how to immediately stop the dozer when working near the edge of the highwall. Provide adequate illumination when work is performed during non-daylight hours.
  45. 45. METAL/NONMETAL MINE FATALITY - On January 6, 2006, a 39-year old mechanic with 12 years mining experience was fatally injured at a sand and gravel operation while working on a front-end loader. The front and rear sections of the loader had been separated at the articulation joint and each section was independently supported with jack stands. The victim was positioned between the left rear tire and frame to remove a hydraulic hose. The frame of the loader tipped forward on the tires and swiveled to the left on the rear axle oscillation trunnion, pinning him.

The front and rear sections of the loader had been separated at the articulation joint and each section was independently supported with jack stands. The victim was positioned between the left rear tire and frame to remove a hydraulic hose. The frame of the loader tipped forward on the tires and swiveled to the left on the rear axle oscillation trunnion, pinning him. Best Practices •Stop, Look, Analyze, and Manage (SLAM) each task to identify all potential hazards before performing maintenance work. Practice safe work habits during the entire task. •Consult and follow the manufacturer's recommended safe work procedures for the maintenance task. •Train miners in safe work procedures before beginning repairs. •Securely block equipment against all hazardous motion at all times while performing maintenance work. If the equipment being blocked has multiple degrees of movement of freedom, exercise extreme caution because some instability modes may not be obvious.
  47. 47. METAL/NONMETAL MINE FATALITY - On November 18, 2005, a 52-year old repairman with 33 years mining experience was fatally injured at a crushed stone operation. A rubber- tired boom truck was being used to lift a motor from its mounting base. The victim, who was attempting to pry the motor free, was struck by the motor when it unexpectedly swung against the crusher as it came free.
  48. 48. METAL/NONMETAL MINE FATALITY - On November 18, 2005, a 52-year old repairman with 33 years mining experience was fatally injured at a crushed stone operation. A rubber- tired boom truck was being used to lift a motor from its mounting base. The victim, who was attempting to pry the motor free, was struck by the motor when it unexpectedly swung against the crusher as it came free. Best Practices Stop, Look, Analyze, and Manage (SLAM) each task to identify all potential hazards. Practice safe work habits during the entire task. Disassemble all tensioned components to prevent a sudden release of energy before dismantling equipment. Position yourself only in areas where you will not be exposed to hazards resulting from a sudden release of energy. Train miners in safe work procedures and ensure they are familiar with manufacturer's recommendations before beginning
  49. 49. METAL/NONMETAL MINE FATALITY - On November 4, 2005, a 21-year old laborer with 5 weeks mining experience was fatally injured at a crushed stone operation. The victim was being task trained to operate a haul truck. While backing down a ramp, he lost control of the truck. The truck went through a berm, overturned, and fell to the bench below.
  50. 50. METAL/NONMETAL MINE FATALITY - On November 4, 2005, a 21-year old laborer with 5 weeks mining experience was fatally injured at a crushed stone operation. The victim was being task trained to operate a haul truck. While backing down a ramp, he lost control of the truck. The truck went through a berm, overturned, and fell to the bench below. Best Practices Task train new miners in all phases of mobile equipment operation at locations designated for training only. Provide classroom training that includes a thorough review of the Operator's Manual before hands-on training of operating mobile equipment. Experienced miners providing task training must be knowledgeable of all safety requirements and proficient in the safe operation of mobile equipment. Conduct pre-operational checks to identify any defects that may affect the safe operation of mobile equipment before placing it into service.
  51. 51. METAL/NONMETAL MINE FATALITY - On October 28, 2005, a 32-year old crusher foreman with 7 years mining experience was fatally injured at a sand and gravel operation. The victim and another miner were moving a radial stacking conveyor to a new position. The victim was positioned on the ground while a front-end loader was used to move the unit. He was caught by one of the wheels of the stacking conveyor.

The victim and another miner were moving a radial stacking conveyor to a new position. The victim was positioned on the ground while a front-end loader was used to move the unit. He was caught by one of the wheels of the stacking conveyor. Best Practices •Stop, Look, Analyze, and Manage (SLAM) each task to identify all potential hazards. Prior to starting the task, jointly discuss steps that will be taken to safely perform the job. •Ensure that miners communicate clearly with each other. •Ensure that miners are not positioned in areas where they are exposed to hazards.

Equipment Safety and Health Concerns Equipment Related Accidents www.msha.gov/equipmentsafety/equipmentaccidents.asp The following pages contain equipment related accident data from 1995 - 2004. Searches can be done for a particular year or by listed equipment type, which then are linked to fatalgrams and accident reports. Our goal is to educate equipment operators and the mining community about the hazards associated with operating a specific type of equipment.

  62. 62. The majority of fatal accidents have these common root causes •Failure to identify hazards •Failure to manage risks SLAM Risks the SMART Way! Miners: Stop Think through the task Look Identify the hazards for each job step Analyze Determine if you have the proper knowledge, training, and tools Manage Remove or control hazards and use proper equipment Mine Operators: Stop Isolate each step in a task and identify past and potential accidents, injuries, and violations. Measure Evaluate the risks associated with the task and barriers that have allowed hazards to cause injuries Act Implement controls to minimize or eliminate any hazards that make the risk unacceptable Review Conduct frequent work site visits to observe work practices and audit accidents, injuries, and violations to identify root causes Train Develop a human factor-based action plan and then involve and train the miners
