At approximately 11:20 a.m. on February 11, 2012, Employee #1, a carpenter, was working ripping small pieces of reclaimed wood using a Dewalt (Model Number 745) table saw. The table saw guard had been removed and the employee was guiding the wood with his left hand. As Employee #1 was guiding the wood from the rear of the saw blade, the saw blade hit a knot on the wood, pulling the wood backwards and dragging the employee's hand into point of contact with the saw blade. Employee #1 suffered deep cuts and fractures on his forefinger, and his small finger. A coworker called for Medical Emergency Services, and the employee was transported to Davies Medical Center, where he was treated for his injuries. Employee #1 was released after two days.
