cyberspacedout: Kid's under 18. I would hope OSHA does investigate this one, and spread the word about the regulations that should've prevented what happened. Sometimes restaurant managers either don't care, or don't know what their employees are doing.


The quote from the OSHA guy was odd..."Still waiting to hear if we're going to investigate"

WTF?

There's a conceivable reason you WOULDN'T investigate?

It's not like kids getting their arms lopped off at work is a daily occurrence...I hope...

rorgus: Bathia_Mapes: TuteTibiImperes: I'm assuming the reason the first hospital turned him away was because they didn't have the capability to treat that type of wound.  A hospital can't legally turn someone away with a life or limb threatening injury that they're capable of handling can they?

Not certain, but could be that they don't have a trauma unit to handle such injuries, or necessary specialists available.

They do. I worked there. I bet they ran his insurance and they couldn't get as much as they wanted. Fletcher Allen is a terrible hospital.


Best health care in the world!

USA! USA! USA!

Hiring stupid people is a major liability.

Yeah, dumbass management who can't run a safe workplace are a major liability. And OSHA fines and insurance rates will soon give a dollar figure to that liability.


Which compares little to how much the family can sue the restaurant for, being they are on the hook for not watching the kid.  I get how kids will play with stuff they are told not to touch, but maybe unplug the thing, or lock out tag out.  We had a kid injure a vendor from another company with powered fork truck, he was fired on the spot.

I also recall a 17 yro playing with a chef knife at an Arby's I was working at, he cut himself deep on one finger.  He had his dad pay for the medical charges so he could keep his job.  I'm surprised the manager still didn't fire him.

/sadly, teens first job, is still them being babysat

Back in the day, at a summer job in a bacon factory, another summer employee almost made arm bacon, but thanks to the quick reaction of a seasoned worker who literally did a superman dive to hit the emergency stop button, the kid kept his arm that day

drxym: Well this kid has ample grounds to sue the restaurant, the installer of the equipment and the manufacturer. A machine that dangerous should have required the operator to hold a button down on the side to run it, possibly two buttons one on either side. That way they can't remove one hand without the machine powering down.


Typically, no one under 18 is allowed to use or clean these type of machines in food service. He'll only get a payout if he was told to clean it by management.
And never, ever clean these things without unplugging them first.

A long-haired freaky person got a Cherokee haircut from a conveyor driveshaft at the last company I worked for; apparently he climbed under the line to retrieve a box that had fallen without stopping it first, and his rat's-nest ponytail got pulled into the shaft; it actually happened a few years before I was there, but I saw the pictures...farking horrifying...

I'm still trying to figure out why the damn thing was PLUGGED IN.

Guy at work lost a finger to a machine last week.  So, I'm getting some creepy flashbacks from this article.

Yeah, well...this is kind of a big country, last I checked.

Guess I'll set up Pungent's Meatpacking and Armlopping Emporium a four hour drive from the nearest OSHA office...

Years ago I got the tip of my finger cut off from a meat slicer. It was funny the tip was gone just the flesh part where it is round so for the next 3 months it was flat. Taught me good about respecting machines and I got real good at LOTO.

Fun for the whole family!


The only way I see that working for today's yutes is, if there's an app for that.

/ Very familiar with cutting/locking power before reaching in to machinery.

Umm...  sooo.. this place has no insurance for employees injured on the job?

The lock out/tag out training from my 7 years in the US Navy as a radar tech STILL sticks with me to this day. You always flag out any equipment that you work on!

My uncle's sleeve got caught in a postal mail sorting machine while he was trying to knock a package loose. The location was shut down for a week to clean up the mess and to give counseling to the people who witnessed it.

Always turn machinery off before working on it. The time you "save" by not doing so isn't worth the risk.

jgk3: An unfortunately effective demonstration of why even small businesses should practice lock out - tag out (LOTO).


Came for LOTO, leaving satisfied.

no comment on the attempt for the restaurant owner to crowd-source money for the medical bills?  I am disappoint.

He also better start crowd sourcing his legal defense fund.   The suit is going to cost him millions.

Yes, my hands come in very handy (scissory) for grinding pasta.  No need to worry about losing elbows.
