Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 201505799Event: 07/12/2005Employee'S Arm Is Fractured By Moving Machinery
At approximately 10:15 a.m. on July 12, 2005, Employee #1, with New United Motor Manufacturing, Inc., was working in the anti-chip booth of the South Paint Shop. A malfunctioning limit switch had been causing car carriers to function improperly resulting in inaccurate painting of cars. While maintenance personnel were on one side of the production line troubleshooting, Employee #1 was on the other side trying to move a car carrier forward to keep it from being struck by another car carrier. While walking backwards, she reached into the bottom of the car carrier to engage the dogs of the car carrier to the conveyor. Employee #1's left arm then became caught between a stationary proximity limit switch and the leg guide of the moving car carrier. She was hospitalized at Washington Hospital for a fractured left humerus.
