Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 112199.015Event: 12/22/2018Worker'S Toes Are Amputated On Rubber Baling Machine
At 6:30 p.m. on December 22, 2018, a 52-year-old male employee was working for a firm that manufactured rubber products. He and a coworker were unjamming a conv eyor located above a baler machine. Conveyor Number 7 had jammed. The employee s ignaled to his coworker to turn off all the conveyors. The coworker turned the c onveyors off via a control panel. The employee began to correct the jam. He step ped up onto the baler and reached to clear rubber from conveyor Number 7. He was standing in an opening where a guard had been removed from the baler. At this p oint, the machine was unguarded. The employee put the rubber he removed from the baler into a hopper. The hopper "made weight," and the baler automatically cycl ed. The employee's right foot was caught in the hydraulic plunger of the rubber baler between the moving baler head and a fixed component of the machine. He sus tained a complete amputation of two toes and a partial amputation of one toe on his right foot. He was hospitalized.
