Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 689281 Event: 11/27/1985Employee Killed In Fall Into Bin
Employee #1 was using a push broom to push miscellaneous turkey parts that had spilled onto the floor and put them behind the open tailgate of a semi-trailer. A coworker on a skidloader was scooping up the sweepings and dumping them into the Equa cooker raw material bin, approximately 3 ft beyond the tailgate of the semi-trailer, which was raised. The bin was 7 ft 10 in. deep to the top of three 14 in. diameter augers. There was no guardrail for the 20 ft wide dump area, only a curb 13 1/2 in. high. The skidloader operator heard a noise that sounded like frozen chunks sliding out of the semi-trailer, hitting the tailgate, then landing on the floor. The operator went to check on Employee #1 and found him face down in the bin on top of the first auger with a large laceration to the face. He had been killed. Causal factors include unsafe work practices and lack of guardrails.
