NEW YORK — An equipment mechanic at Sadoff Iron & Metal Co. in Fond du Lac, Wis., was seriously injured when he fell into a shear box, the company said.

"He was on our second-shift maintenance team working on a 1025 shear," Sadoff chief executive officer Mark Lasky told AMM. "He was in an area that was restricted and unguarded. He fell 13 feet into the shear box after an Allen wrench broke. The employee suffered a broken femur, a broken pelvis and a head laceration and had to be airlifted from the scene." Lasky said the worker was scheduled to be released from the hospital July 18 and is expected to make a full recovery.

He noted that the company was working with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration in investigating the accident.

Sadoff, a privately held ferrous, nonferrous, alloys and electronics scrap recycling company, does business in 37 states and exports to Canada, China, India, Mexico and South Korea.
