Excavator cabin incident caused by inadequate repairs
The cabin of an excavator dislodged and fell onto the tracks of the machine. The operator had to be rescued from the cabin by the mine’s rescue team.
Ask yourself and your crew:
- How can something like this happen here (e.g. on our site)?
- What safety measures (i.e. procedures, controls/barriers) do we have in place to mitigate the risk?
- How do we know the risk controls/barriers are working?
- What improvements or changes should we make to the procedures, controls/barriers or the way we work?
