Employee Is Injured While Adjusting Machine

On October 18, 2005, Employee #1, with Key Container (a manufacturer of custom corrugated boxes) was making a routine adjustment on the side gate of a Hycorr rotary die cutter to change the horizontal dimension of an opening which determined the quantity of boxes feeding into the machine. The side gate was located right above the feed gate at the back end of the machine, and was not within reach from the floor. It was common practice for operators, including Employee #1, to climb up onto the machine frame to make the adjustment. While climbing with a T-wrench in his right hand, Employee #1 slipped and fell onto the machine frame. His arm extended on the machine frame as he fell, and the tip of the wrench passed through a fixed barrier and made contact with the running rollers. His right hand was smashed by the handle of the wrench when it made contact with the running rollers. Employee #1 was hospitalized at Saint Francis Hospital for a finger amputation.
