On September 12, 2006, Employee #1 was working as a laborer in a shop that manufactured boilers, operating a Caterpillar Model Number T50D industrial forklift. He placed a bundle of flat steel sheets on a 12-foot press brake and then reached through the mast of the forklift to adjust a channel spacer. As he did so, he made contact with the forklift's control levers. The forks lowered onto one of his hands, amputating a finger. He was not hospitalized.
