Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 170706691Event: 06/06/1993Employee Fractures Arm In Dye Machine Rollers
On June 5, 1993, Employee #1 was manually unloading a Burlington atmospheric strand dye machine, serial #4B 188, by unwrapping the end of the cloth from the string guide. As he did this, his hand became caught in the feed rolls inside the machine. The dye machine, in operation at the time, has two 30 inch by 36 inch side openings into which the cloth is manually fed and from which it is retrieved. There are no guarding or interlock devices to prevent a worker from inadvertently coming in contact with the rotating rolls/pinch points inside the machine.
