At approximately 8:10 a.m. on October 16, 1996, Employee #1, a punch press operator at Mid-West Fabricating Company, was operating Toledo punch press #97 when her left index finger became caught in the point of operation action and was lacerated. The machine was equipped with pull-back restraints. Subsequent investigation revealed that the setup man had adjusted the right pull-back but not the left pull-back, thus enabling Employee #1's finger to remain in the point of operation.
