Worker has finger crushed on poorly guarded machinery

A Suffolk based plastics company has been prosecuted for health and safety breaches after a worker had his finger crushed on poorly guarded machinery.

Robert Walters, 62, was cleaning a printing machine at Tenza Technologies Limited when his left hand was caught between two rollers.

His ring finger was badly damaged and he was off work for 12 weeks.

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) investigation found that the machines was poorly guarded and was not fit for purpose.

They also found that the machine was poorly maintained and a risk assessment, training, instruction and supervision at the company were also deemed inadequate.

Swain & Co.’s personal injury solicitors say that this incident could have been avoided and a painful injury prevented if the company had more robust systems in place to check the guarding and maintenance of it.

It is vital that companies ensure that machinery is fit for purpose, maintained efficiently and control measures are routinely monitored and assessed. The consequence of not doing so is that employees get injured, as in this case.

Employees deserve to go to work and come home from work safely.

If you have been injured in an accident at work that was not your fault, speak to Swain & Co for free to discuss the possibility of making a claim.

Can you afford not to make a claim for your injury and losses you may have sustained as a result of an accident at work?
