At 12:30 p.m. on June 24, 2018, an employee was positioning a channel iron inside a powered clamp that was part of a band saw. While manipulating the channel iron, the employee placed his right hand at the point of operation. A coworker, who was not aware that the employee's hand was in the saw's point of operation, activated the saw. The powered clamp caught the employee's right hand, resulting in an avulsion to his right ring finger. The employee was hospitalized and received treatment for his injury.
