Abstract: Employee #1, a maintenance worker, was called to a robotic cell because a pin was sticking. Instead of following proper procedures and opening the gate, which would have shut down the unit, for some reason he climbed over the 6 ft high fence and tried to repair the unit while the robot was operating. Employee #1 became caught in the machine and was killed. He had received about five or six weeks of training and had worked on robots since March of 1999. Entering the cell in this manner was forbidden by company regulations.
