Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 200050714Event: 04/13/1999Two Employees Killed When Engulfed By Corn Grain
Employees #1 and #2 were scraping and removing caked meal from the sides of a so y meal bin. When they finished this work, they went over to the corn bin. The BI N FULL switch had been manually activated, presumably by one of the two workers. Employee #1 entered or fell into the corn bin first, followed by Employee #2. A coworker who was investigating activation of the switch saw Employee #2 being e ngulfed in grain and threw him a rope. Employee #2 could not hold on and was bur ied in the grain. As this was occurring, both corn and soy meal were being drawn off the bottom of the bins. Finally, a hole was cut in the bottom of the corn b in, and the bodies of Employees #1 and #2 were recovered. They died of asphyxia. Neither employee was attached to any sort of lifeline.
Keywords: asphyxiated, lifeline, agriculture, work rules, cleaning, flowing material, fall protection, buried, grain bin
