Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 200534832Event: 01/17/2012Employee Suffers Injury While Using A Dash 1
On January 17, 2012, Employee #1 was working alone on a Dash 1, cleaning the sand off the teeth and cylinder. Employee #1 locked out the Dash 1, removed four bolts from the head and opened the cylinder. Employee #1 then used an air hammer to break loose the hardened sand from the teeth and cylinder. Once the process was completed the employee was spinning the head to make sure it was turning freely. Employee #1 tried to manually move the head and realized it was stuck. The employee grabbed the teeth of the Dash 1 with both hands and pulled. The head broke free, spun and caught Employee #1's glove, pulling it while spinning. The employee's finger was pinched between the teeth and the cylinder. Employee #1's middle finger on the right hand up to the first knuckle was amputated. The employee was treated at an area hospital and released.
