Worker’s left hand was pulled into a roll feed punch press machine and crushed between the sheet and rollers. As a result, the worker’s ring finger and little finger were amputated. The front end of the machine presented a pinch point sufficient to crush and mutilate a worker’s hand. In addition, no emergency stop switches were provided in the danger area. After the accident, the defendant produced and installed screen guards to protect its employees from potential injuries resulting from the rollers.
