At 2:10 p.m. on May 31, 2019, Employee #1, employed by a concrete construction company, was engaged in concrete cutting operations for a new pavement construction project. He was wearing gloves and using a MECO walk-behind flat concrete cutting saw with an 18-inch blade powered by a gasoline 4-cylinder Hyundai motor. The blade became pinched in the cut he was making. He tried to operate a lever switch, which moves the blade up or down, but could not get the switch to work. Then he opened up the cover enclosing the motor and the battery. He tried to wiggle the battery cable to see if that would make the switch work. His right hand came in contact with the cooling fan's rotating blades. His right middle fingertip and that part of the glove were shredded. The employee received medical treatment for the fingertip amputation and possible electric shock and was released without hospitalization.
