Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 202458337Event: 07/17/2013Worker'S Arm Is Cut When Struck By Grinder Disc
At approximately 9:00 a.m. on or about July 17, 2013, Employee #1, a fulltime employee of BRC Mobile Sandblasting & Painting, Inc., an industrial/commercial painting and sandblasting contractor, was working in the employer's yard. He was grinding a piece of metal in preparation for painting. He was using an air-powered right angle grinder, Allied Pneumatic Model GW P5K26, Serial Number A002210, with a 5-inch 3M Fibre Disc 24 Grit attached. The flexible disc separated, and a piece of the disc struck Employee #1, lacerating the bicep on his right upper arm. Employee #1 was transported to the hospital, where he was admitted and treated. The subsequent investigation found that the grinder's disc apparently had a hairline crack. When Employee #1 started the grinder, the disc separated and a piece struck and lacerated his arm.
