On February 27, 2008, Employee #1 was standing behind the raised bridge which runs between the paper winder and the J table. The bridge was lifted. A coworker, who was in his second day of training on this table, was operating the J table controls. The J table failed to lower all the way to the ground. The operator attempted to raise and lower the table in to reset the limiter. The approximately 8 ton rolls of paper then fell back against the bridge, breaking the safety arm and crushing the employee between the bridge and frame of the winder. Employee #1 was killed.
