Bander Lockout Incident
The middle dunnage was missed in a load during the automatic cycle. Operator backed up the package into the strapper to replace the missed dunnage. The strapper operator bent down and was manually positioning the dunnage (middle bunk) with his left hand. His right hand was on top of the package for stability. Once the dunnage was placed in the track, it blocked the photocell which triggered the strapper auto cycle. The plate dropped and pinched the worker’s fingers.
