Investigation Summary

Investigation Nr: 201065042
Event: 03/28/2002
Employee Amputates Fingers

At approximately 4:20 p.m. on March 28, 2002, Employee #1, was working for a company that manufactured wooden cabinet stands for antique cash registers and slot machines. The spindle motor had 9-horse power and the machine weighed 525 kg (approximately 1157 pounds). The spindle speed was adjustable from 3,000 to 10,000 RPM. Employee #1 was putting a profile on the outside edge of oak door frames that measured about 13 1/4 in. by 18 7/8 in. He was not using an automatic feed. The opening in the fence for the shaper blade was about 5 in. wide by 6-1/2 in. high. The shaper blades were not effectively guarded and the employee was wearing gloves. The shaper blades were stacked and had different profiles, although based on the thickness of the door, the additional profiles were not being used. When Employee #1 bent over to pick something up off the floor, his right hand entered the point of operation and three fingers of his right hand were amputated. The middle finger was broken and the thumb was cut. The glove was shredded and may have contributed to the severity of the injury. Employee #1 was hospitalized and his fingers were amputated.
