On August 24, 2006, Employee #1, a press operator, noticed raw material jammed in the die of a hydraulic power punch press. The press was running on automatic, and he switched the press to manual believing that was sufficient to prevent the press from cycling. He did not deenergize the press before he started removing the cover off the die, where the material was jammed. The press cycled, and the ram came down onto his right hand. He sustained massive trauma to his hand, including the amputation of his ring finger and the tip of his index finger. He was hospitalized.
