Schreiber Foods Plant Worker Killed After Entrapment in a Machine in Carthage, Missouri

Carthage, Missouri — Reports of a worker “entrapped in a machine, needing extrication” at 127 Claxton Ave prompted an emergency response from Carthage Police, Carthage Fire, and MERCY AMB at Schreiber Foods. The incident took place on Tuesday afternoon.

According to emergency personnel, an adult male was found inside a protected area on the floor, unconscious, unresponsive, with shallow breathing and a faint pulse.

Despite life-saving procedures by emergency responders, the worker was pronounced deceased at the scene.

The identity of the deceased worker has not been disclosed at this time.

Thoughts on fatal industrial accidents

The family of the worker entrapped in the machine deserves answers regarding the circumstances leading up to the incident. They deserve to know if all necessary precautions were taken and if any negligence on the company’s part contributed to the accident.

It’s important to ask whether the facility did everything in its power to keep its workers safe. Any workplace with dangerous machinery or equipment must have safety protocols in place, including thorough safety training for employees on handling hazardous machinery.

Moreover, regular maintenance and inspections of machines are crucial to ensure they operate correctly and safely. If there are any gaps or shortcomings in the safety planning of a company, they must be held accountable for their role in such a tragic accident.

Workplace safety should always be a top priority, and companies need to be held accountable when they put profits over safety.
