At approximately 10:00 a.m. on March 8, 1993, Employee #1, of Kaiser Steel Resources, was removing a 250 lb motor-gear reducer unit from a water clarifier system at a wastewater treatment facility by using a hydraulic crane and sling assembly. As the motor-gear reducer released its housing, the unit swung to the side, striking the housing flange against a steel standard guardrail. Employee #1 had his hand on that guardrail. The pinch point between the flange of the motor housing and the guardrail amputated his left pinkie finger to the first digit. The employer had a proactive safety program. There were no violations of the T8 standards; therefore, no citations will be issued.
