Investigation Summary

Investigation Nr: 126539.015
Event: 05/27/2020
Employee Is Killed After Being Caught In Auger

At 4:00 a.m. on May 27, 2020, Employee # 1 was working as the night boiler opera tor. The boiler is fed by a series of augers that move woodchips to the boiler from a silo that stores the woodchips. The woodchips are moved to the silo from a conveyer that collects woodchips throughout the saw mill. An auger located at the base of the woodchip silo that normally rotates and sweeps the base of the s ilo malfunctioned in its sweeping motion. This caused the woodchips to no longe r be fed into the boiler. Employee # 1 had entered inside the silo to move the w oodchips to the center of the auger using a shovel, where they would drop down a nd be fed towards the boiler. While inside the woodchip silo, the sweeping auger was still spinning. Employee # 1 was caught by the spinning auger and was fed t hrough several augers. He suffered fatal injuries and was killed.
