Information:

A third year apprentice, assisting in the adjustment of the discharge opening of a mobile jaw crusher, was unscrewing the retaining nut on the drawback tension rod and spring assembly when the rod failed catastrophically. This caused the components to fly out with force, striking him on the shoulder, and causing severe bruising and soft tissue injury.
