Employee'S Hand Is Degloved During Maintenance

At 12:00 p.m. on April 19, 2017, an employee was assisting a coworker to trouble shoot a malfunction of an Amada CNC machine (model number: S-10, serial number: 131) that resulted in a coolant leak. After the coworker removed two panels, no rmally affixed on the front and side of the machined, and determined that metal chips were blocking the coolant drainage, the employee approached the machine an d began helping his coworker remove the metal chips. Much of the metal chips acc umulated behind the guard of the machine. As the employee used a magnet and was pulling chips from the side panel access, the CNC turret indexed forward and str uck his right hand, pinning it against the inside of the machine's frame. His h and was caught in a sheer point, resulting in its degloving. The incident inves tigation revealed that the machine was not locked out during the maintenance tas k and steps to protect against injury during the troubleshooting portion of the inspection were not implemented.
