At approximately 6:10 a.m. on February 25, 2004, Employee #1 was cleaning the floor of trash sorting-conveyor machine when he noticed a jammed hanger wire in the chain sprocket drive of the moving conveyor.

The height of pinch point on the chain-sprocket unit was measured to be approximately 51-in. from the platform. The cover that existed on the chain-sprocket unit had been removed the previous night for some repair work but the repair man forgot to replace the cover. Employee #1 was not trained in lockout and tag out safety rules by his employer. Employee #1 also stated that the cover from the pinch points had been missing for at least three days prior to his accident. Employee #1 was hospitalized.
