www.rockproducts.com ROCK products • October 2018 • 59 MSHA has determined that mobile equipment operators are more likely to survive rollover and tipping accidents when they are wearing a seatbelt. However, not all drivers take that precaution. MSHA examined 38 fatal accidents that occurred since 2007 involving mobile equipment in which the deceased was not wearing a seatbelt. MSHA determined that 35 of the victims (92 percent) might have survived had they been wearing a seatbelt. We believe that engineering controls could increase the use of seatbelts by equipment operators. Belt conveyors are another type of powered haulage that has accounted for an outsized share of fatalities. Since 2007, there have been 18 fatalities related to working near or around belt conveyors. The great majority involved miners becoming entangled in belt drives, belt rollers and discharge points. Factors that contribute to entanglement hazards include inadequate or missing guards, inadequate or an insufficient number of crossovers in strategic locations, and/or inappro- priate lock out/tag out procedures. Systems that can sense a miner's presence in hazardous locations and/or ensure machines are properly locked out and tagged out during maintenance could reduce fatalities. We can't be complacent in our successes in reducing mining related injuries and deaths. Mining can be inherently dangerous work and everyone's vigilance is required to keep it safe. We welcome your ideas as we move forward to improve safety in powered haulage classifications, and all mining activities. David G. Zatezalo is Assistant Secretary Mine Safety and Health. Zatezalo is a native of West Virginia and has spent a lifetime working in mining. He began his career as a union miner and since then has held positions at a number of com- panies as shift foreman, engineering superintendent, mine manager, vice president of operations and chief executive officer. Assistant Secretary Zatezalo has worked in mining all across the United States and internationally in Australia. Zatezalo has a degree in mining engineering from West Virginia University and is a registered professional engineer in Ohio and West Virginia. He also has an MBA from Ohio University. He is the past chairman of the Kentucky Coal Association and the Ohio Coal Association. He's also been a member of the Mine Rescue Veterans of the Pitts- burgh District. 1 Publication Title: Rock Products 2. Publication Number: 0035-7464 3. Filing Date: 10/1/2018 4.
