Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 200411148Event: 06/04/2008Employee Is Asphyxiated When Engulfed By Soybeans
The employer had two 1,000-ton capacity silos, silo A and silo B, which were used for soybean meal. The silos were equipped with the Laidig Reclaim Auger systems. Silo B's auger was not operational, and Employee #1 opened the side cover to visually inspect the auger. Approximately 80 tons of soybean meal was stuck onto the sides of the silo. Before Employee #1 was able to close the opening, the soybean meal broke free and flowed out of the opening engulfing Employee #1 who was working from a raised platform on a forklift. Employee #1 was asphyxiated and was killed.
