Truck driver killed after falling from his bulk trailer

The Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) has issued a fatality alert after a truck driver appeared to have fallen from his bulk trailer.

The MSHA says the driver underwent emergency surgery at hospital but passed away from his injuries.

This is the sixth quarry-related fatality reported in 2020 and the second fatality classified as ‘slip or fall person’, the administration adds.

The administration has issued some best practice advice: “Provide a means to align bulk trailers under truck racks to assure the ramp is aligned correctly with the trailer’s lids so that miners have safe access.

“Alignment methods can include painted lines, concrete barriers, cameras and monitors, or sensors to indicate proper positioning.

“Wear proper footwear that is clean and in good condition.

“Examine work areas and routinely monitor work habits to ensure that workers follow safe work procedures.

“Identify and control all hazards associated with the work to be performed.
