Accident at work – worker loses two toes

An employee of a brick manufacturing company has suffered the partial loss of two toes in an incident involving machinery used to break up clay. The events occurred at the brick manufacturer’s headquarters in Blockley, Gloucestershire.

Accident at work – safe guards not in place

In an investigation led by the health and Safety Executive, Stroud Magistrates’ Court heard that the un-named 45-year old male worker sustained serious injuries to his right leg (including the partial loss of two toes) after stepping onto unguarded machinery.

The machinery in question had recently been installed. A risk assessment had identified the need to install guards (or barriers), but the advice had not been followed and measures to prevent an accident had not been taken.

Company fined for safety failings

Northcot Brick Limited was found guilty of breaching the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974. The company was fined £18,500 and ordered to pay costs of £7,500

HSE Inspector Ann Linden commented:

“This incident would not have happened if simple precautions
such as putting up a barrier or guard had been in place.
Safeguards cannot be relaxed because a machine
is being commissioned or tested.”
