Worker Operating Nail Gun Sustains Puncture Wound

At 11:30 a.m. on August 17, 2017, Employee #1 and Coworker #1, employed by a con struction company, were working with fellow crewmembers at an existing multifami ly residential complex. They were performing renovations to one of the four bui ldings. The work included removing rotted wood trim and replacing exterior sidi ng. The workers were installing Hardie Board siding that measured 8 inches by . 25 inch by 12 feet. The crew used a Mag 77 circular saw to cut the siding to th e needed length. Employee #1 used a Hitachi NV 65AH2 pneumatic nail gun to fast en the siding to the structure. The nail gun operated at approximately 60 to 70 psi and dispensed nails approximately 2 inches long via a single sequential act uation mechanism or a contact actual mechanism, which in both modes required the operator to pull the trigger. As Employee #1 was operating the nail gun, Cowor ker #1, as he exited the work area, inadvertently caught his foot on the hose su pplying air to the nail gun. Coworker #1's foot pulled the hose, and the nail gu n turned toward Employee #1's body. The tip of the nail gun pressed against Emp loyee #1's chest area, and a nail was dispensed into his left chest cavity. Eme rgency services were called, and Employee #1 was transported to the hospital. H e was admitted, the nail was removed from his chest, and the puncture wound trea ted.
