Employee Is Killed When Screw Conveyor Falls Onto Employee

At 1:30 p.m. on June 30, 2017, an employee attempted to manually move a portable screw conveyor in order to move it out of the way so he and a coworker could wo rk on another piece of machinery. As the employee was pulling the portable scre w conveyor, the wheels on the screw conveyor were caught on a crack in the concr ete floor inside the employers processing area. The screw conveyor was housed in a heavy steel tube. The configuration of the screw conveyor was such, that the support frame supporting it collapsed when the wheels on this frame struck a cr ack in the concrete. The screw conveyor component of the assembly fell onto the employee who was positioned below it. The screw conveyor assembly struck the e mployee between his shoulder blades and knocked the employee to the floor. As t he screw conveyor assembly was very heavy, the employee was crushed by the screw conveyor. The employee was transported to the hospital, however, the employee died shortly after arrival.
