Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 170168785Event: 10/10/1991Employee'S Foot Caught In Moving Rice Auger
At approximately 10:10 a.m. on October 10, 1991, Employee #1 and a coworker left rice bin #2 and went over to rice bin #1 to help load a truck. Employee #1 turned on the motors for the bazooka, the bottom auger, and the sweep. He climbed up the ladder of bin #1 and entered the door. He put his right leg into the rice bin, not realizing the doors in the bottom were open, exposing the moving bottom auger. Employee #1's right foot contacted the auger and he tried to jerk his foot out, but it was caught. He screamed for help and the coworker rushed over and turned off the motors. Employee #1 stated he had not received training regarding safety or any training on the safe procedures for entering a rice bin. The employer is being cited a serious violation of T8CCR 3203(a)(7).
