Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 202596631Event: 12/14/2009Employee'S Leg Is Amputated When Caught In Auger
On December, 14, 2009, Employee #1 and some coworkers entered a declassified confined space area to tend a sweeping auger that emptied into another auger. The grain tank was being emptied by a rotating 12-inch diameter auger system to allow the corn to be directed to various locations in the plant. The employees were working on a pile of corn flowing into the auger system, which was guarded by a metal grate. However, the opening was too large for the grate, allowing Employee #1's foot to enter the auger's path and be caught by the auger system. His right leg was amputated, and he was hospitalized for his injury.
