Police are investigating after an employee was found dead at work at an Enid, OK, grain processing facility.

According to reports, first responders were dispatched at 11:19 a.m. on October 6 to the ADM facility in Enid in reference to a fall with injuries.

Police officials confirmed 38-year-old Dustin Cain Buffalo died.

Buffalo's wife told KOCO 5 how she's remembering her late husband, who always brought a smile to those who needed it.

"He was a great husband, great father. He has grandkids," Shandey Buffalo said. "And he was just taken way too soon."

Buffalo's family set up a GoFundMe page to help pay for the funeral expenses.

15% of accidental deaths are from slips, trips, and falls

OSHA’s Walking Working Surfaces Standard is among the most frequently cited standards every year.

Approximately 15% of accidental deaths are from slips, trips, and falls, according to OSHA data. And one-fifth of general industry’s workplace disabling injuries and days away injuries are the result of slips, trips and falls.

The rule applies to all general industry workplaces — which grain and feed facilities fall under — and covers surfaces such as floors, scaffolds, stairs, ramps, roofs, ladders and elevated walkways.

The OSHA rule mandates training for fall protection systems and fall hazards. It also adds requirements to the design, performance and use of personal fall protection systems.

Make sure your grain processing and animal feed milling facility are in compliance.
