Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 95150.015Event: 04/13/2017Employee Is Struck By Mechanical Arm And Is Killed
On Thursday, April 13, 2017, at approximately 5:00 PM, an employee was conducting a maintenance job to replace an actuating hydraulic cylinder for an electrode arm on the EMC International Inc. Ladle Metallurgy System (LMS) at a host employer's steel mill facility. The hydraulic cylinder controlled the rise and fall of a steel LMS electrode arm that measured approximately 16 feet in length and weighing an undetermined amount. The cylinder weighed approximately 400 pounds when there was no hydraulic fluid present inside of the cylinder and approximately 800 pounds when filled with hydraulic fluid. The employee had started to cut a welded metal piece from the rear of the electrode arm to return the LMS to service. The metal piece detached from the arm and gravity brought the arm to its resting position approximately 4-8 feet below. The arm came down and struck the employee on the head. According to the Coroner's report, the employee was killed with a lacerated brain injury and suffered a fractured skull.
