At 8:15 a.m. on February 27, 2019, Employee #1 was removing a 6 foot long, 400 lb. idler roll on the rewind section of the coating line equipment. A fork-truck with an extending boom arm was used with a choked sling around the roller to lift it.

The employee suffered three fractured fingers on the left hand. The employee was hospitalized.
