Summary Nr: 201362019Event: 06/08/2003Employee Is Killed When Crushed In Pivoting Furnace Roof
On June 8, 2003, Employee #1, a contract millwright and welder, was crushed when he was caught in the pinch point of a hydraulic-operated roof on a Melter 2851 blast furnace. When the roof is in its open position, there is a walkway between the furnace and the superstructure. During closing, the superstructure pivots, creating a pinch point that is only a few inches wide. Employee #1 was found dead on the walkway adjacent to the furnace. There were no witnesses to the accident.
