    So nobody checks the ovens before they dump a couple of tons of tuna in there?

    Looking at the ovens, I can't imagine how this happened. It looks like a long tube.

    this is so sad. Horrible.

    I think the tuna is already canned when they put it in the ovens. I'm not sure, but that what I thought.

    ^Yeah, in the article it said the oven is used to sterilize the cans, not the exposed tuna.

    I hope so. And that he was unconscious by the time he started cooking.

    The tuna was already canned. There should be safety checks in place to make sure this stuff doesn't happen. Tyson was and probably still is horribly notorious for doing anything to keep from stopping the line. An employee was missing for 48 hours at a Tyson facility before he was found electrocuted in the facility. Luckily (for Tyson and consumers)he was not in the chicken but the fact that an employee went unaccounted for in that place after there had already been safety issues in which someone was actually pulled into the machinery. They will do anything to keep from stopping the line. After the insurance companies come in and decide what a lower level employees life is "truly" worth maybe it's cheaper to pay a family than stop production.

    There are procedures in place to prevent this that they (including the accident victim) must have just been blatantly ignoring. OSHA calls the procedure "lock out tag out." Anytime a piece of machinery is to be worked on, the circuit breakers or activating devices are to be pulled ("lock out") and then subsequently tagged with DO NOT OPERATE tags. Someone is supposed to do it, sign it off, and then the employee entering the danger zone verifies and signs it off. The previous employee usually stays with the locked out tagged out equipment until the job is done.
    We see this all the time when a maintenance worker is up in the tail or other hydraulically activated parts of the airplane. The circuit breakers are pulled and all flight controls are tagged because any inadvertent movement of them woukd crush the worker in the flight control surface. If those operations are going on, I just get my crew off the jet and tell maintenance to call us when they're done. I'll accept a late departure over crushing someone to death any day, thank you. Can't be too safe about that stuff.
