Employee Amputates Fingers While Fixing Loose V-Belt

At 11:50 a.m. on December 20, 2021, an employee, the maintenance manager, was as sisting a contracted electrician, who had been hired to perform maintenance on t he hydraulic pump of a motor that operates part of the car wash, i.e., fixing a loose V-belt. There were two motors in the area, which is in the equipment room, each with its associated hydraulic pump beneath the motor. The V-belt on the l eft, connecting the motor on top with its hydraulic pump below, was loose. The employee had gone to the car wash tunnel's breaker box to turn off the power to that motor, per the instructions of the electrician. When he returned to the eq uipment room, the electrician felt the tension on the V-belt on the right motor/ pump to have a point of comparison. Then, he suggested that the employee do the same. The employee placed his right hand under the V-belt of the motor/pump lo cated on the right side, and then that motor/pump started automatically, crushin g three fingers on the employee's right hand. The employee was hospitalized to t reat amputations to three fingers on his right hand.
