At 10:00 a.m. on February 7, 2018, an employee was using the companys secondary paper cutter machine to cut a stack of paper to size. The employee had used a high density polyethylene plastic hand-held jogging block to make sure the stack of paper was pushed firmly against back and side guides to ensure the stack was even and in place. The employee engaged the blade and, when it struck the jogg ing block, it threw the block from the press and struck him in the face, lacerat ing the skin and fracturing his facial bones below the left eye. The employee d id not seek immediate medical attention and had an unrelated medical appointment that same day where he was diagnosed with bruised sinuses.
