Mine Safety and Health Administration

September 7, 2023 - On August 4, 2022, a mine manager died while performing maintenance on a bulldozer.  While kneeling on the bulldozer’s track, the victim accidentally engaged the lever that put the bulldozer in reverse.  The bulldozer track moved the victim to the rear of the bulldozer where he was run over.

Best Practices:

  • Operators should train miners on safe maintenance procedures:
    • turn off the engine
    • block equipment against motion
  • Operators should make sure miners are in a safe location in relation to machine parts that can move.
