On December 20, 2002, Employee #1, a mixer blend operator working at a PVC pipe manufacturing company, reached inside a mixer hopper (which was in the "on" position) with his left hand to grab a piece of foreign material laying in the powdered mixture. The mixer's hopper has a screw auger which carries the powered mixture up a chute. As the employee grabbed the foreign material, his gloved hand made contact with the screw auger and was pulled up into the auger itself. The screw auger amputated Employee #1's left hand at the wrist. Employee #1 was hospitalized for his injuries.
