On April 18, 2008, Employee #1 was operating the Ormont die press (Ormont Number DU-44, Serial Number 7757), a traveling head die cutting press. These presses are sometimes called "clickers". Employee #1 was working along with his lead man. The operation is normally a one person job, but with larger pieces tending to bunch at the edges, they sometimes use two operators. Employee #1 was standing behind the machine adjusting large pieces of materials (0.75 inches thick and around 4 foot square) when the lead man activated the two-hand trips, closing the press on Employee #1's arm. Employee #1 has been unable to work for a month and has had repeated operations. The press should not be operated by two operators without separate two-hand trips.
