At 9:30 a.m. on April 2, 2018, an employee was working for a manufacturer of pla stics products. He was setting up a table saw to cut a 75-millimeter (3-inch) PV C pipe in half horizontally. The PVC pipe jammed between the blade and the rip f ence. Because the guard had been removed, the employee's left hand made contact with the exposed blade. The employee sustained the amputation of the distal and middle phalanges on the index finger and the distal phalanx on the middle finger . He further sustained fractures in the small finger. The employee was hospitali zed and treated for his injuries.
