At approximately 7:00 a.m. on August 15, 2013, Employee #1 and Coworker #1, painters employed by a painting contractor, were about to begin the second day of painting the walls of the Oakland Convention Center's parking lot. Employee #1 was changing the tip of a spray gun. He accidentally activated the spray gun's trigger. The spray gun injected paint under pressure into his right hand index finger. Coworker #1 transported Employee #1 to Kaiser Oakland Hospital, where he was admitted and treated for a deep laceration to the tip of his right index finger. Employee #1 was discharged on August 17, 2013.
