Employee Is Killed When Hoodie Is Caught By Fiber Reclaim Ma

On October 21, 2017, an employee was working for a firm that manufactured motor vehicle parts. The company manufactured textiles used for noise control and ther mal insulation. The employee was working with a Feilong line reclaim machine or pre-opener reclaim machine. An area of the machine allowed material fibers to es cape and spray or fall into a surrounding area. The perimeter of the machine was guarded by a yellow painted fencing system. The employee entered the space encl osed by the perimeter to cover the area where the fibers escaped. She accessed t he back of the machine through an interlocked door. As she was in the space past the interlocked door, she reached over to grab a fiber pad to cover the open sp ace. She was wearing a hooded sweatshirt, or hoodie, that was very large and loo se-fitting. Her hoodie became entangled in a still rapidly moving belt and spinn ing pulley on the machine. The injuries she sustained were so extensive that she was killed.
