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.
