This OSHA Injury Report was built from data that is publicly available from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). It has been compiled directly from the data provided on OSHA’s website with most of the fields and categories provided. We claim no responsibility for any errors or inconsistencies in OSHA’s data.

OSHA Injury Reports can be helpful in understanding what types of workplace injury claims involve defective products or malfunctioning equipment in the workplace. The manufacturers of defective products or equipment are called “third parties”. When a “third party” is involved in a workplace accident, it is possible to collect damages beyond worker’s compensation.

Report: Struck against moving part of machinery or equipment at Clarion Boards, Inc. in Shippenville, Pennsylvania

DATE: 01/02/15

Employee suffered the amputation of three fingers while working on the south in-bed fuel airlock in the energy building. He was using a hammer to hit the outside of the chute to loosen built up saw dust. The chute leads to an airlock, which feeds the blow line to the boiler. He removed the panel cover over the airlock to see if the saw dust was falling in. He slipped and his left hand entered the airlock. Contact with the rotating parts in the airlock resulted in the multiple-finger amputation.
