On July 10, 2006, Employee #1, a maintenance technician, was instructed to check an oil leak on a DTI auto packing machine. The employee opened the lower door of the machine without turning its power off. He found that the oil leak originated from a blown out shaft seal. As he was wiping the lower base plate with his left hand in a blind reach position, his thumb was sheared by a displacing vertical shaft. He was treated at Stanford Hospital in Palo Alto, CA, and was released the same day.
