At 8:00 p.m. on Friday, November 23, 2018, an employee was working at a supermar ket. He was working in the meat cutting department, behind the meat counter. He was a direct employee of the store. The store or firm had a meat manager, who wa s the employee's supervisor. There were two dispatchers working at the meat coun ter in front.

This incident occurred on his fourth time cleaning the meat cutting machines. The employee was cleaning a Hobart Model Number 6801 meat cutting band saw. It operated at 3,450 rpm. The employee had opened up the guar d on the band saw blade and was hosing it off. He turned on the band saw to clea n all the parts of the band saw blade, as he had seen other employees do when cl osing, and then turned the machine off.

While the blade was still moving , he placed the middle finger of his left hand in the vicinity of the point of o peration. The fingertip of his middle finger was amputated.
