Abstract
A 37-year-old Hispanic helper on a steel-slitting machine died when he was caught between some sheet metal and the rewind cylinder. The victim went underneath the machine to pick up scrap pieces of sheet metal when the incident occurred. The victim entered the machine through an area which was not guarded. The CA/FACE investigator determined that, in order to prevent future occurrences, employers, as part of their Injury and Illness Prevention Program (IIPP), should: 1. Ensure machines with moving parts are properly guarded. 2. Ensure employees do not place any part of their bodies into areas where they might become entangled with machinery when it is running. 3. Ensure that workers follow established lockout/tagout procedures for control of hazardous energy during cleaning procedures.
