Employee'S Fingers Amputated When Hand Caught In Gears

At about 7:00 p.m. on June 20, 2002, Employee #1, a machine operator, was working on an ACME GRIDLEY automatic screw machine Number 43, located in building M2. Employee #1 was facing the roll clutch of the screw machine Number 43, which was used to pop out the clutch lever. To fix this, Employee #1 turned off the power by pressing the red E-stop button. Then he flipped open the roll clutch and the gear box hosing panel and attempted to access the roll clutch, located behind the gear assembly. As Employee #1 accessed with his gloved right hand, it got caught in the still running gears which pulled his hand in. Employee #1 amputated his right little and ring fingers and sustained severe trauma to his middle finger.
