He replaces Lee Morgan, who will resign as Camfil APC president after remaining onboard through the end of the year to ensure a smooth management transition. O'Connell is uniquely qualified to di‐ rect the continued growth of the dust collection business, having served with Camfil APC's parent company, the Camfil Group, for more than three decades. He was presi‐ dent and CEO of the Camfil Group for 12 years, stepping down from that post in late 2013 to serve in a senior advisory capacity. During his tenure, Camfil grew to 3,700 em‐ ployees worldwide and expanded into the North American HVAC and dust collection markets.

MSHA Posts Fatal Accident Report The Mine Safety and Health Admin‐ istration has released its investiga‐ tion report for the July 23 fatal accident at the Cemex Brooksville South Cement Plant in Florida. On the day of the accident, 51‐year‐ old Ismael Santana, contracted to haul material for Tri‐State Carrier, reported to the mine guard shack at approximately 8:45 a.m. He was de‐ livering his first truck load of fly ash for the day. Santana had picked up loads of fly ash from the Port of Tampa and delivered them to the mine for the past 13 years. After Santana checked in, he drove the haul truck to the materials stor‐ age building. Prior to the accident, Gary Moore was operating a front‐ end loader on the north side of the materials storage building where he was loading fly ash into a dump hop‐ per located at the top of an inclined ramp. Santana parked his truck and exited with the crank handle to roll back the tarp in his hand. At approxi‐ mately the same time, Moore dumped a bucket of fly ash into the hopper and backed the front‐end loader down the ramp. He then turned the rear of the front‐end loader to the east and struck San‐ tana, pinning him between the rear of the front‐end loader and the fuel tank of the haul truck. Moore real‐ ized he hit the truck and pulled for‐ ward slightly. He exited the front‐end loader and saw Santana lying on the ground next to the haul truck. Santana was responsive and complaining of chest pain and trou‐ bled breathing. At approximately 8:50 a.m., Moore used the radio to call David Miner in
