Abstract: On May 31, 2013, Employee #1, a parts fabricator, was operating an (Accurpress Model Number 725012) hydraulic brake press. The employee was bending a 90 degree angle on a 6 in. wide by 6 ft long metal strip. The strip was not properly inserted into the dies nor aligned with the back stop of the machine. As Employee #1 reached into the point of operation to realign the part, he mistakenly activated the press with his foot control, crushing and amputating eight of his fingers. Employee #1 was transported by the Emergency Rescue Service to Woodland Memorial Hospital, and later taken by ambulance to San Francisco hand center, where several of his fingers were to reattach. Employee #1 was hospitalized for ten days.
