Employee Amputates Finger When Working On Pump

At 3:45 p.m. on September 27, 2018, an employee was working at a food packaging facility. The employer purees and packages baby food at this facility. On the day of the accident, Employee #1's supervisor and a coworker were trying to repa ir and set up the Waukesha 130 PD Pump for the food item to be processed the fol lowing day since it was making an unidentifiable noise. It was the end of the shift, and Employee #1's supervisor told him to stay and help in finding the sou rce of an unidentifiable noise on the Waukesha 130 PD Pump. This pump purees fo od, and needed to be set up for the next shift, as a different food item would b e processed through this machine. Employee #1 and his supervisor took apart the machine to investigate. The machine was located on the floor. They did not fi nd anything, so they started to put the machine back together. While Employee # 1 had his hands near the roaders, which is a rotating part on the machine, Emplo yee #1's supervisor stood up and turned on the machine at a panel on the wall. This is a cord and plug machine, and it was not locked out, nor was the plug und er the exclusive control of the employees performing the work. Employee #1 suff ered an amputation injury with bone loss to the pinky finger on the right hand. Employee #1 was treated at Hoag Hospital in Irvine, California, and had surgery on October 3, 2018 for this injury.
