Employee #1, a chipper tender, attempted to clear a jam in the sawdust hopper located above the saw dust chain conveyor. The conveyor and hopper were elevated and the employee was working from a ladder. The sawdust chain conveyor was operating at the time and Employee #1's shirt became caught on a metal bar welded to a rotating shaft, which was part of the conveyor's power transmission apparatus. As his shirt was twisted around the metal bar on the rotating shaft, the employee was pulled from the ladder. The shirt twisted tightly around the employee's neck, killing him.
