Worker in Sharon, MA Dies After Getting Caught in Cutting Machine

Industrial Metal Products — a metal product machining company in Sharon, Massachusetts — is participating with a safety investigation conducted by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) after a worker passed away from injuries suffered onsite on July 12th, 2018. It marks the first fatal work accident on record at the site.

The name of the metalworker who lost his life has not been released to the public at this time. According to first responder reports, the man became trapped inside of an industrial cutting machine around 10:00 AM. He was extricated from the inner workings of the machine after about an hour of rescue efforts. An ambulance rushed him to a nearby hospital, but he later passed away.

Statements from the man’s coworkers indicated it was not quite clear how the accident occurred. The machine was apparently undergoing some sort of maintenance that involved disconnecting and moving heavy parts. It is not known how the worker got inside the machine to become stuck and fatally injured.

Since this is a work related accident and death, the deceased’s family will be able to file a workers compensation claim and receive death benefits as well as payment of medical and funeral expenses. Benefits are payable to various related individuals based on proximity of the relationship. Benefits are always payable to dependent children and spouse if that spouse does not remarry.
