Lucky escape – Near Miss Accident

Recently, a driller in a surface crushed limestone mine lost control of his drill steel and lunged to catch the drill steel in order to keep it from falling over the highwall. In the process, the driller’s footing gave way and the driller fell over the highwall berm.  However, his safety harness lanyard engaged, preventing him from falling over the highwall itself.  Nearby employees noticed the miner suspended upside down on the highwall and rescued the miner by dragging him up by his pant legs. The miner sustained only minor injuries.
This alert can be posted on bulletin boards, used in safety talks, or given to miners and contractors as a hand out.
