Abstract: At approximately 11:30 a.m. on December 3, 2009, Employee #1 was polishing metal casing on a belt-sanding machine at Ohio Decorative Products Incorporation in Spencerville, Ohio. The machine was designed to utilize a belt on both side, but the right side was missing. This left the rotating shaft exposed on the face side of the machine. After returning from a break, Employee #1 energized the machine. He then proceeded to pick up a piece of cardboard from the floor beneath the exposed rotating shaft. As he bent over, his hair in a pony-tail caught on the shaft, avulsing the hair and scalp from his head. Employee #1 received treatment at a medical center and was hospitalized. From the investigation, there was no guarding around the rotating shaft at the time of the accident.
