    In these incident the Manager over these Supervisors IMO should be fired.

    If you would please share the details of the conveyor accident that you described.

    How were you sucked in?

    Bet that didn’t slow down production one bit. Throw some tape around the mess and get back at it. We almost had an accident last week with a contractor driving his truck like a mad man, came up the wrong way passed the twenty signs telling you to stop and turn around and almost plowed right into a PC.

    Take chances and pay the price sometimes.

    True statement, but very little is known about this specific incident to draw any conclusions at all about what happened to cause this fatality.

    Do you agree?

    Do you know more?

    Package Stick "Send it."

    Sweeping stuff off the unload belt with the estop on, coworker "pushes" the belt in turning it on, I reach for moving packages and my arm gets sucked into the transfer plate. Pretty stupid of me to reach by the transfer plate.

    I really think you shouldn't be able to move the extendo belt if an estop is engaged, that would've prevented my arm from getting sucked in.

    Is so bad at out building that they gave us the papers with our names and answers already marked, all they did was review them, most of us refused to sign.

    Traumatic brain injury, a shoulder injury, broken ribs and a broken spine eventually took the young man’s life.

    Sounds like he was rolled up like a cigar?

    I've seen some videos on LiveLeak from China, of people getting caught up

    in machinery.... their bodies just get pulverized.

    Boywondr The truth never changes.

    Nothing new for farmers. Here we had a young boy get his shirt stuck in a conveyor auger and corkscrewed his body into the conveyor system. He lived but his arms were torn off.

    We all take a lot for granted whether it's behind the wheel of a vehicle or working around machinery.

    Older farm equipment is no joke. I've seen my fair share of PTO mishaps - stuff that will never fade from my minds eye. Never take safety for granted when working around machines. Literally one second of in-attention can have fatal consequences.

    My heart goes out to this young man's family, especially the sister mentioned in the article. I have a sister who is 10 years younger than I am, and we are very close. I can't imagine receiving a phone call like the one the young lady in this article received. It would be devastating, to say the least.

    As a staunch supporter of worker safety....

    What happened, with the on-site demonstration of roll-over accidents ?
