Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 200052967Event: 05/07/2007Employee Is Killed When Engulfed In Grain Bin
On May 7, 2007, Employee #1 and Employee #2 were cleaning a grain bin. The emplo yees entered the grain bin to shovel millet to the center of the bin. Employee # 1 and Employee #2 were aware that the auger was running, while the employees wer e inside of the grain bin. The flow of grain had slowed. Employee #2 exited the bin to go below to the auger and clear what he believed to be a clog. The superv isor was involved in a second task, when Employee #2 exited the bin. The running auger created a condition where the grain was flowing, and Employee #1 became c aught in the flow and was pulled under the millet. Employee #2 returned to the b in. The supervisor asked where Employee #1 was located. After a search of the ar ea, they determined that the millet had engulfed Employee #1. The employee was l ocated under the millet by Emergency Services and the Sheriffs Department's pers onnel approximately 30 minutes after the accident occurred. The official cause o f death was ruled as asphyxiation. There was no restraint or retrieval equipment available at the site to keep the employee from being fully engulfed or to assi st with pulling Employee #1 from the grain bin.
