At 11:00 a.m. on January 19, 2022, an employee was activating a photo sensor eye to get a conveyor to run so he could watch and listen for a grinding noise comi ng from the conveyor. After activating the conveyor several times by waving his hand in front of the sensor and then listening and observing, the employee belie ved the noise was the result of the two plastic conveyor belts rubbing. The empl oyee put his left hand on the top belt to pull up on it while using his right ha nd to activate the sensor to get the belt to move. While holding the top belt as it moved, the employee contacted the in-going nip point created between the pla stic sprocket and belt with his left pinky finger.
