Caught in, Under, or Between

A "caught in" injury is one in which a worker is crushed between two objects, often materials or machinery. According to MSHA’s data, activities including machine maintenance and handling of supplies or materials result in most caught in, under, or between injuries. These injuries most frequently result in the fractures of the fingers, feet and hands, and tend to most often affect maintenance personnel, roof bolters and laborers.
