Employee Injured When Caught On Transformer Winder Spindle

Employee #1, an assembler, was operating the winder to apply a copper strip to a transformer coil that was mounted on a spindle. He placed the strip into the shear to make a cut but to align it properly, he needed to momentarily press the REWIND button. Instead, he inadvertently pressed the automatic run ON button, which set the spindle operating at 28 rpm. His clothes became caught on the spindle fixture and he was rotated around on it. Employee #1 suffered an avulsion injury of his forehead, a fractured left femur, and a dislocated right knee.
