didn't know where to put this comment but why is there no mention of the accident at the landfill in the daily news..a mechanic started the compactor pulled it forward left it running crawled under it to grease it and the operator got in it raised the blade and crushed the mechanics foot..(why to be on top of things Pilot Cub reporters)..that mechanic has God watching over him cause if you have ever seen the compactor it is unforgiving and will pretty much compact anything in its path..its called lock out/ tag out if you are working on any type of motorized vehicle the keys are to be taken out with a out of service tag and if there is a disconnect switch it needs to be paddle locked in the off position..thank God this man didn't get killed heard today he is going to lose is little toe better than your life..this is two serious accidents here in three years..of course God rest his soul Doug Bell ( miss you bro),and now this. how the landfill got by his death with OSHA is beyond me.. if this doesn't raise a red flag then what the H..l will..OSHA needs to crawl up every orifice at this place to assure that something like a death or this type of accident doesn't happen again

paddle, Hopefully, by now, some action has been taken to improve the safety where you are employed. If emergency services weren't called our paper would not have known about this horrible accident. OSHA has to be contacted. They too wouldn't know unless it is brought to their attention. I'm glad the mechanic is doing well. I've seen those monsterous machines - he was very lucky!
