Employee Injures Index Finger And Thumb While Using Router

At approximately 4:00 p.m. on April 29, 2002, an employee was working as a carpenter, for Amber Furniture Inc., in the cutting and molding department. Amber Furniture Inc. is a wholesale manufacturer of wood furniture for the home and office with 20 employees. He was shaping a new crown pattern out of compressed wood for a king-size headboard 3000 using a Danly Onsrud electric router model B0117H, Serial number 807540-15. The employee bolted a pre-made pattern to hold the two pieces together in order to shape it with the router. This was done on a 20- by 32-foot worktable. While he was feeding the stock from the right end, the majority of the two-piece material hung over to the right edge of the worktable. This eventually caused the long wooden material to become off-balance with the worktable. The left end of the material tilted upwards as the employee's left hand was holding the left end, close to the router's spinning bit. Then the bit severely abraded the employee's index finger and a small part of his left thumb. He was treated at a nearby clinic and transferred to the Arrowhead Regional Medical Center. The employee was hospitalized for five days as a result of his injuries.
