Actually, an employee or contractor can file a complaint anonymously.


That is true, but most times that information gets leaked out.

Losing an arm on the job is not worth any amount of money.

He will be compensated, but I'd rather have my arm back.

For real, if you go to the topics where a biker died, people act happy. These people are sick.

You sound like someone in management.
Having worked in a car plant as a manager, let me tell you, managers are limited to what they can tell a member of labor. If an employee climbs inside a stamping press to get a wayward piece of sheet metal, you can tell them not to, but then the shop steward is riding your butt and you are getting plant management on you for "creating a hostile environment". I kid you not. Management is damned if you do, and damned if you don't.

And what does management think about OSHA when they come around?

Don't tell me; get out the brooms!

Having worked in the chemical industry for 40+ years this "should never happen". It's doubtful a written lock out procedure wasn't in place.
If I had to guess I'd say a shortcut was taken.
Not all repairs can be made while using the lock out... some repairs require the machine to be on, so what should you do then?? And you don't have to guess, a mans arm was lost don't add insult to injury! This man is a wonderful person who follows rules and procedures in his life and at his job!!!

Sorry Bubba.....under no circumstances should anyone stick anything into a piece of moving machinery.....maybe someone needs to look at the operating procedures, they appear flawed.

Anyway......I also hope the fellow is doing well and wish him the best.

Each body part has a dollar value in pennsylvania So sad that a employer can get off with paying cheap settlements 2 hurt employees. U cant sue your employer and also work 4 them in pennsylvania. So were would a man with only 1 arm get a job, who would hire someone like that

Everyone automatically assumes the company is at fault....I'm sure they do have a LOTO procedure, does that mean no one ever breaks the rules? I'm not saying that it was this guys fault...BUT, I can promise you this...most of the time major accidents happen it's due to someone NOT following proper procedure. Not sure what happened here, but I can tell you at my work we've had a couple accidents that would appear to the companies fault...but in the end.....it was the employee's not doing what they have been trained to do. Just saying....
