At approximately 1:00 p.m. on March 24, 2006, Employee #1, a heavy equipment operator, climbed onto a conveyor belt after pulling the emergency stop cord located along the conveyor walkway. When the conveyor started, he was thrown over the conveyor head pulley and became caught in the pinch point between the head pulley and the belt. He was hospitalized for an amputated lower left leg. The cause of this accident was failure to lock out/tag out the conveyor. An additional significant factor was the lack of an interlocked conveyor start-up warning horn.
