Employee #1, a mechanic in the maintenance department at a printing plant, was cleaning hardened glue from the belts and rollers of a reamer/stacker machine. He cleaned off nearly all the hardened glue, but a little remained, so he actuated the rollers and tried to clean the grooves with a file. The glue was tacky in one section and caught the file, twisting it in his hand. Employee #1 suffered severe lacerations to the middle and ring fingers of his left hand. He was sent first to a clinic and then to the hospital, where surgery was performed. He was released the next morning.
