Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 201077690 Event: 02/15/2012Jammed Hot Tortilla Press Burns Employee'S Right Hand
At approximately 4:10 p.m. on February 15, 2012, Employee #1 was cleaning a tortilla press (Grupg Villamex, SA of C.V., V 1300, Serial Number 024, 331 pounds). She was using a pumice stone and an oven glove while cleaning the top plate of the press when the plate collapsed on her gloved hand and caught her hand between two heating plates. These plates were heated to 194 degrees. Employee #2, the supervisor, lifted the front door off the tortilla press and moved the chain gear in an upwards direction allowing Employee #1 to remove her right hand. The press was plugged in and two plates were not blocked in order to keep them from coming together. She was taken by ambulance to the USCD Medical Center and was treated for third degree burns to her right hand and fingers. Employee #1 was in the hospital for one week where she received multiple surgeries for skin grafting.
