Employee Hospitalized After Severely Lacerating His Arm

At approximately 10:25 a.m. on June 13, 2003, an employee was cutting slots in aluminum molding. According to the employee, the saw blades had been replaced a half-hour before the accident. When it became apparent that the 10-inch saw blade was cutting too deeply into the aluminum, he went to get pliers to adjust the guide screw. He turned off the machine with the On/Off button at the front of the machine, but did not lockout the electrical power of the machine. He then reached for the guide screw to adjust the blade. He dropped the pliers on the left side of the saw and reached in with his left arm to retrieve the pliers. At that moment the machine started to run with his arm still in contact with the saw blade. His arm was severely lacerated his arm. After the accident, the employee was transported to Saint Francis Hospital where he was admitted and treated for his injuries.
