At approximately 8:40 a.m. on August 18, 1999, Employee #1 was servicing the on-off control switch for a magnetic drill. He was holding the back of the drill with his right hand and his left hand was on the barrel. When he pushed the demagnetized switch, the drill turned on. The magnetized drill barrel caught his wedding band causing the amputation of part of his left ring finger. He was hospitalized and underwent surgery for his injury.
