Summary Nr: 201690229Event: 04/04/2001Employee Injured When Hand Pulled Into Belt Sander
Employee #1 was using a glue stick to clean the belt sander while the belt was in motion. Employee #1 was holding the glue stick with his left hand, using his left thumb, index finger, and middle finger. Employee #1 reached over to the other side to clean the belt and was about to touch the belt with the glue stick. Employee #1 felt his left hand get pulled into the belt. Employee #1 tried to use his right hand to pull out his left hand. Employee #1 screamed, and coworkers turned off the machine at the power disconnect, since there was no emergency stop. The coworkers called an ambulance. Paramedics transported Employee #1 to Martin Luther King Hospital. Employee #1 had his left index finger and left middle finger amputated as a result of the accident. Employee #1 was released from the hospital on April 19, 2001.
