At 3:00 p.m. on May 14, 2018, Employee #1, employed by a construction company, was engaged in carpentry work for a new residential structure, a multiemployer construction project. He was operating a powered circular saw that required two hands to operate while using one hand to support a 4-foot long piece of 2 by 4 lumber. The saw blade encountered a knot and kicked back, nearly severing his left forefinger. The employee was transported to the hospital, where he was admitted and treated. During surgery, his finger required amputation.
