May 29, 2024 - On October 2, 2023, a miner died after he was pinned between a shuttle car and a coal rib.

Best Practices:

  • When working around mobile equipment, communicate your presence and intended movements to equipment operators. Wait for acknowledgement before moving. 
  • Avoid “Red Zone” areas where equipment operators cannot readily see you. 
  • Increase the visibility of miners by using reflective clothing and/or strobe light devices.
