Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 98062.015Event: 08/09/2017Employee Is Injured When Struck In The Head With A Descendin
At approximately 4:30 p.m. on August 9, 2017, a maintenance mechanic was leaning into an operational forge press to investigate why the ingot feed conveyor was not operating properly. The employee stepped onto the foot pedal as he was looking through the machine frame. The press cycled and the employee was struck in the head with a descending forge die. The press operator was nearby and ran to help the employee. Before the operator could reach him, the employee stepped on the foot pedal again and the press cycled a second time, striking his head again. The press operator was able to pull the mechanic free of the machine and summon assistance. The employee suffered skull and face bone fracture and brain trauma. The employee was hospitalized and treated for his injuries.
