On July 11, 2008, Employee #1 was standing in front of a Saspi Thread Roller Machine, (Model Number 10; Serial Number 752; Company Identification Number 11-115, located in Cell 405), at a company that manufactures aircraft fasteners. Employee #1 was setting up, and in an attempt to "retrieve part of inspection", he inadvertently engaged the forward button instead of the reverse button. The die clamp contacted Employee #1's left ring finger, causing a laceration and fracture. Because of complications related to diabetes, the laceration eventually became infected, and the finger had to be amputated. The accident was reported to DOSH on "October 5, 2009."
