WARNING VIEWER Discretion Advised - this video may be upsetting to some viewers as it shows the painstaking mistake a worker makes by using his foot to push material into a feed auger.  In this video we can see the worker standing in the "dump chute" manually feeding material into an auger hopper.  It appears this worker was comfortable doing this task as he did not think twice about doing it.  The auger grabs his foot and pulls him into the auger.  Sad to sad, the auger twisted off his foot and this saved his life as he was not fully pulled into the auger which would have undoubtedly killed him.

WARNING!  Viewer Discretion advised.  No blood or gore, but it is an accident caught on camera and may be upsetting to some viewers.

1910.178(n)(4) The driver shall be required to slow down and sound the horn at cross aisles and other locations where vision is obstructed. If the load being carried obstructs forward view, the driver shall be required to travel with the load trailing.

A couple of weeks ago I posted Machine guarding CNC Mills and Lathes (OSHRC Decision) and got all kinds of negative feedback as if I was the OSHRC.  But I do have to admit that I agree with the OSHRC's decision 100% and this video will demonstrate why the makers of the CNC style machines want their doors closed and interlocked...

WARNING! - Viewer Discretion is Advised!  No blood and guts, but the video may be upsetting to some viewers.  Worker died from his injuries suffered in this accident caught on CCTV.
