Abstract: On March 26, 2009, Employee #1 was helping to clear a 2 in. by 4 in. by 12 ft wood board that had become jammed on a Coastal Planer (Serial Number H8D-213-79). To do this, he and a coworker were operating the planer alternatively in the forward and reverse modes with the planer running at full speed. While Employee #1 was located near the planer's 12-in.-square in-feed opening and while the machine was running in reverse, the jammed board violently ejected from the planer. The board became impaled in Employee #1's chest, killing him.
