Abstract: At 9:20 a.m. on February 17, 2022, an employee was troubleshooting a non-functioning garage door motor on an extrusion resin dock. He used an onsite scissor lift to gain access to the motor, placing him approximately 19 ft. 6 in. above ground level. As the employee was checking the tension of the belt, the motor began to operate and pulled the employee's finger in between the belt and pulley. The lack of energy control procedures for the garage door opener likely contributed to the accident. The employee's right index fingertip was amputated at the base of the nail bed. He was treated without hospitalization.
