Man Killed in Winery Accident in Australia

Agricultural/food accidents aren’t all that uncommon. In this case an auger claimed a life. When I was in college, a friend lost his leg in an auger accident. He was trapped for hours in a remote field before anyone found him and he almost died.

Could agricultural companies apply advanced root cause analysis to improve performance and reduce deaths and injuries? You bet. Some already have.
