At 12:45 p.m. on February 8, 2017, Employee #1, employed by a spray-on fireproofing company, was working at a multiemployer construction site, a building being rehabilitated. He was inside the building and mixing fireproofing material in a Toro ULTRAMIX MMX 858S Mixer. On the hopper of this mixer was a lid constructed of metal with a 4 by 4 opening. The lid was loose, to the point that Employee #1 was able to reach his hand under the lid. Employee #1 added two new bags of fireproofing material to the hopper, and some of the material stuck on the mixer's. Employee #1 reached his right hand under the lid and into the hopper to push down the material. The mixer paddles amputated his middle and ring fingers. Emergency services were called, and Employee #1 was transported to the hospital. He was admitted and treated for the amputations, but medical personnel were unable to reattach either finger.
