Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 200612380Event: 08/31/2006Employee Lacerates Fingers In Lawn Mower
On August 31, 2006, Employee #1, who had been working for a landscaping employer for about 2 weeks, was adjusting the height of the wheels of a Toro push-behind lawn mower to lower its blades. The mower's stop control was disconnected, and the mower did not stop running unless the plug wire was pulled off the spark plug. The employee was unaware that the blade was still rotating, when he placed one hand under the mowing deck. He sustained severe lacerations to his ring and middle fingers. Employee #1 was hospitalized.
