Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 201690807Event: 09/10/2002Employee Amputates Finger In Wood Shaper
At approximately 2:50 p.m. on September 10, 2002, Employee #1 had finished his sweeping task, and asked the lead person for the second time if he could make the fluting. This time the lead person agreed, but told Employee #1 he would have to watch him to ensure he knew how to operate the machine. Employee #1 started the shaper and shaped several pieces of oak board, while the lead person watched. After that, the coworker returned to work on his table saw. After he left, a piece of wood bound up in Employee #1's shaper and then kicked back out of the machine. Employee #1's left hand struck the shaper blade, amputating his middle finger at the first knuckle. He was transported to Gardena Memorial Hospital for treatment.
