Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 201794948Event: 10/05/2001Employee Amputates Fingers In Sheet Metal Machine Rollers
On October 5, 2001, Employee #1 worked at a boiler manufacturing shop and was feeding sheet metal into a pyramid-type roller designed to bend the sheet metal. Employee #1 was wearing gloves at the time of the accident. His right hand was drawn into the rollers, amputating his right small finger and degloving his ring finger. The machine used was very old, and the company was a family-owned business. The current president of the company did not know who the manufacturer of the machine was and no identifying marks or plates were observed on the machine. The machine had three rolls in a triangular configuration. The rolls measured 4-inches in diameter and were 3.5 feet in length. The machine was inadequately guarded. Employee #1 was hospitalized to treat his amputated finger.
