February 27, 2017, an employee was sanitizing an RPC dipping tank when his right hand got caught in a moving conveyor. When his hand got caught in the pinch point it caused an abrasion on his right arm. He was hospitalized and received treatment.
A 2-Minute Drill would have captured the hazard of the pinch point and told him to de-energize the conveyor.
