Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 201691375Event: 04/22/2004Employee Amputates Fingers On Unguarded Knife Blades
At approximately 11:15 a.m. on April 22, 2004, Employee #1, a new employee of three weeks, was training to operate a Machine Cascade Shaper, Model Number F/114 and Serial Number-33-14, located in the Plainer Department. Employee #1 processed 200 door parts and was asked by a coworker to rework two pieces that were 3-inch by 5-inch. To rework the pieces, Employee #1 was required to remove the auto feeder, which guarded the knife blades. Employee #1 placed his left hand on the piece of wood and his right hand on a wooden block with a handle, and began shaping them. The piece came apart and wood flew into Employee #1's eyes. His left hand moved into the unguarded knife blades and partially amputated four fingers on his left hand. He was hospitalized for his injuries.
