2014 Mine Safety – Accident Prevention

Every year, mining continues to rank among the most dangerous occupations in the world. There are countless hazards employees face each and every day to perform their tasks. One of the biggest dangers is the machinery in which these employees work on and around. Mining equipment is incredibly large, heavy and can move at fast speeds. With a mixture of many sites of autonomous and man-operated machines, it can put the workers on site in great danger of being crushed, pinned or run over by equipment. All of these accidents can be prevented with training and health and safety awareness along with the use of proper safety equipment to ensure accidents do not continue to happen during daily duties and routine maintenance of trucks.

The Department of Labor recently released the Third Quarter Summary of 2014 Fatal Accidents at Metal/Nonmetal Mines with Preventative Recommendations” report.  This states there were 8 devastating deaths that occurred during the 3rd quarter of 2014. Two of these tragic deaths could have been prevented with the use of wheel chocks, preventing machinery from moving uncontrollably.  Another death occurred while working under a vehicle that was not cribbed properly, tragically taking a life.

These deaths really hit home with the Checkers team, as our goal is to keep employees safe by providing safety equipment that saves lives and protects assets. Below are some of the safety products we offer that serve the mining industry and continue to eliminate safety hazards like these on the job site.
