Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 202557310Event: 11/12/2013Employee Amputates Two Fingers While Cleaning Grinder
On November 12, 2013, Employee #1, with Interlink Inc. Dba Precision Plastics Printing Company, was cleaning a plastic grinding machine (Cumberland Engineering; Model Number: 1018X; Serial Number: CA025200-05017). For some reason, such as the grinder had become jammed, Employee #1 turned the power off and opened up a cover, which exposed the rotating blade. This blade took about three minutes to stop rotating completely, after the power was turned off. While the blade was still rotating, Employee #1 proceeded to pull out the plastic material around the blade area, and his two fingertips came in contact with the blade. Employee #1 suffered amputation of left middle and ring fingertips. He lost about three quarters to one inch on each finger. He was treated in an emergency room and was not hospitalized.
