Dangerous Work Place Injuries: KCCI, Channel 8 ran a story about an 82-year-old man working in quarry and being killed after ending up inside the rock crusher. Man Found Dead In Rock Crusher, DeWitt, Iowa. The U.S. Department of Labor is investigating. I'm sure IOSH is as well. This case is one that can result in a workers' compensation claim. The worker was Bruce Anderson, the quarry is noted to be Anderson Quarry. 
Rock crushers and shredders shred rock, engine blocks, appliances and cars. This machinery is dangerous to work around and can be deadly. If you're interested in seeing how it works, follow the links below. A question came up this week in a real estate broker's class about whether owners of companies can be covered in Iowa under workers' compensation. The answer is yes you can if you elect to cover yourself. So meet with your insurance agency that secures your workers' compensation insurance and cover yourself under the policy. 
If you're curious about injuries caused by rock crushers a search on Google will provide several stories or YouTube videos involving mining.   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Z9Cm92vfQA

This accident got me wondering what a rock crusher looks like. 
There are several on YouTube that can give us an idea of the scope of this machinery.
