At 3:20 p.m. on December 28, 2021, an employee was assisting a coworker preparin g to cut a piece of steel on a Cincinnati Incorporated Shear. The employee and t he coworker were working in tandem to set-up a 3 foot by 4 foot steel sheet to b e cut on the shear. The employee was moving the sheet into place and had his han d under the sheet. As the employee moved the sheet along the table to the straig ht edge, his foot inadvertently depressed the foot pedal causing the shear to ac tuate. This caused the hold downs to descend and clamp the steel, pressing it to wards the table causing a pinch point between the steel and table where the empl oyee was resting his left hand. The employee partially amputated his fingers and required hospitalization.
