Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 202473054Event: 09/01/2006Employee'S Fingers Amputated In Mechanical Punch Press
At approximately 7:00 a.m. on September 1, 2006, Employee #1, a temporary employee, was operating a mechanical punch press. Employee #1 was working for an employer that manufactured metal toilets and sinks. The press operation was actuated with two-hand tripping buttons. Employee #1 pressed the buttons and the ram came down to complete a stroke. After that, he placed his left hand at the dies to remove the part, when the ram unexpectedly came down again on his fingers, crushing them. Employee #1's fingers were subsequently amputated while he was hospitalized and being treated for crushing injuries to his hand. The press did not have a multiple stroke function and tripping the two-hand buttons should have caused the press to create only one stroke, but the ram malfunctioned when it created two strokes with an actuation.
