When he was finished, he decided to clean the built-up pitch residue and other debris from the sanding belt at the outfeed side while the sander was still in the operating mode. The outfeed section was not guarded and all moving parts were exposed. As Employee #1 cleaned the rollers and belt with a rag, his glove was pulled into the rollers. He was hospitalized with a serious injury to his left hand.
