Abstract: On or about June 7, 1991, Employee #1 was assigned to help a press brake operator run a job. The employee had never been instructed on how to operate a press brake. The operator told him how to run the pieces and told him to be careful. The supervisor never returned to the brake to check on Employee #1. At about 6:30 p.m., when the employee and the press brake operator returned from a break, they ran one piece. When they began to pull it from the point of operation, the brake cycled and caught Employee #1's left hand and amputated his fingers.
