Workplace Accident Investigation: Magnet Roller Injury
These are illustrations from a case in which a man's arm and hand were crushed and burned between the drums of a machine used to roll out refrigerator magnet material. The machine had all safety devices missing at the time of the accident.
Using pre- and post-accident video and photographs and a side-elevation diagram of the machine, I created a perspective view illustration of the machine (below, left), with one side rendered semi-opaque to show the post-accident configuration with the correct safety equipment installed.
I also illustrated a clean version of the side-elevation (below, right) clearly showing the location of the safety equipment and the points at which the injured man's arm entered and was pulled through the hot rollers (red arrows).
