Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 201058823Event: 05/29/2004Employee Lacerates Wrist With Box Cutter
On May 29, 2004, Employee #1 was working between Mold machines Number 7 and Number 8 on the production floor. Toward the end of the day, Employee #1 needed more pail handles. After placing the unopened box on a worktable, Employee #1 was cutting the top of the box with a box cutter, cutting from right to left. Unexpectedly, the cutter became caught on something inside the box. Employee #1 continued to pull forcefully on the cutter, when the blade type box cutter broke free from the box. The box cutter struck her left wrist and forearm. Employee #1 was transported to General Hospital of Los Angeles, California, where she received medical treatment to repair the median nerve in her left forearm. The contributing factor of the incident was a lack of training on the safe work practices for utilizing the blade type box cutter.
