Employee Is Injured When Hand Caught In Machine

At 6:15 a.m. on September 13, 2010, Employee #1 was performing cleaning duties on the Autefa crosslapper, Machine 4211, on Card Line Number 2. This is a normal operation engaged in by Employee #1, who had ten years of experience operating the equipment, and at least four years cleaning it. Employee #1 and a coworker had already locked out Card Line Number 2 so that they could clean the crosslapper and the spinnbau card machine, respectively. Employee #1 informed his supervisor that he wanted the carriage of the crosslapper indexed to where the panels had been removed since he wanted to clean it. Employee #1 removed his lock from the crosslapper power source. The supervisor and the coworker remove their lock from the Card power source, since having one power source locked out deenergizes the entire line. The supervisor could see the coworker from where she was standing at the control panel, and after the coworker removed his lock, The supervisor subsequently started the machine back up. The panels of the crosslapper were still off of the machine, and Employee #1 had his hand inside of the machine as the carriage came by. The carriage struck Employee #1's hand, crushing it between the carriage and the frame of the machine. The coworker yelled out "Stop!" and the supervisor stopped the machine. Employee #1 was able to free his hand with some help from the supervisor pulling on his torso. Security was called and they contacted emergency services. Employee #1 was transported to the Loma Linda University Medical Center where he was admitted for treatment.
