During that entire time, there had been no guard on the press, which was operated by foot pedal. Employee #1 had to reach into the die to place and remove parts. The employee's foot slipped on a non-skid pedal pad, causing the press to activate on his right hand and amputate the tips of the 2nd and 3rd fingers.
