Event: 09/02/2022
Employee Is Killed When Crushed By Hydraulic Mold Lift

At 6:00 a.m. on September 2, 2022, an employee was assisting a coworker to troub leshoot an issue with a Roberts Sinto Corporation FBO Series Molding Machine, se rial number FMM-0106-00. The machine was incorrectly forming molds due to exces sive sand and debris underneath the hydraulic mold lift section. Without shutt ing the equipment down, deenergizing, or locking the equipment out, the employee and coworker used shovels and brooms to clear the sand. The hydraulic mold lif t was still not moving into the down position, so the employee crawled underneat h to clear additional sand by hand. While still under the lift section, the lif t came down on the employee, killing and crushing him.
