Employee #1, a temporary worker, was setting up a die in a Clearing 32 ton part-revolution mechanical power press when he inadvertently cycled the press with the foot-operated control. His right hand was in the die area and sustained serious injuries, for which Employee #1 underwent several operations to repair damage to his hand and fingers. Apparently, the press's guarding and gates were not interlocked, thus allowing Employee #1's hand to be in the die area.
