At approximately 12:00 midnight on August 25, 1995, Employee #1 was cleaning the floor and machine area around a conveyor carrying squid and other seafood. He reached into the roller/conveyor area at the end of a table to remove excess seafood from under the belt, apparently without realizing what he was doing. The belt caught his coat sleeve and suffered a broken arm. The belt was immediately shut off. The employer was cited for not having a pinch point or point of operation guard in place.
