Abstract: On November 21, 2002, Employee #1, a welder from the Fabrication Department of Betts Spring, was using a drill press to drill holes in small parts that had been fabricated. He had taken one part out of a vice and left the drill press running while putting another part in the vice. Employee #1 was wearing cotton gloves and the thumb on his right hand got caught in the spinning drill. That resulted in amputation of his thumb tip. He was taken to University Medical Center for emergency treatment and was hospitalized.
