At 5:45 a.m. on June 21, 2018, an employee and coworker were on a scissor lift ( JLG 2630S, Serial Number ES26N-052) installing drywall. The scissor lift, operat ed by the coworker, was next to three electrical conduit lines that were not con nected to power. As the coworker attempted to lower the scissor lift platform to continue work, the employee reached out and to physically move one of the condu it lines that were blocking the scissor lifts movement. As the employee kept the conduit out of the way with his hand, the coworker continued to lower the sciss or lift. The employee was unable to react quickly enough to move his hand out of the way of the descending platform and his left middle finger was caught betwee n the scissor lift rail and the conduit. As a result, the employee's left middle finger was pinched between the two objects and amputated. The employee was hos pitalized.
