When his glove became entangled in the rotating press, his little left finger was amputated. Employee #1 was hospitalized at Pomona Valley Hospital for treatment. The employer reported that Employee #1 was told in safety meetings not to wear gloves while working on drill press, and therefore violated the company's safety policy.
