Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 201168960Event: 07/16/2007Employee Injured When Hand Shot By Powder-Actuated Nailer
On July 16, 2007, Employee #1, a carpenter and drywall installer for Rice Drywall, Inc., was framing at a Marriott hotel undergoing renovations in Culver City, CA. He was using a Ramset model 721 powder-actuated tool, and 1-1/4 in. pins to attach studs to the deck to support soffits that were to be installed. The tool misfired, and Employee #1 tried to activate it two more times. He had put his hand in front of the barrel of the tool while trying to troubleshoot the problem when the tool activated, shooting a pin into his lower palm. Employee #1 was transported to UCLA Hospital, where he underwent surgery and was released the same day.
