Something went wrong, such as the hydraulic Press not being rendered safe to work on and nobody following safe work procedures or lockout/tagout. Nobody can crush your head if you have locked the machine out with your personal lock and with that machine in a safe state to work on. Plenty of times where I have locked out and then tried to energize the machine in order to prove that the isolation has been done effectively and that the machine is in fact safe. The same with working on piping and making sure that it is de-pressurized or bled and purged. I found the Chinese worse than Thais in regards to understanding ( or wanting to understand ) and using lock out, tag out type safety preparation.
