Automotive Firm Fined after Worker Loses Finger

An automotive company based in Birmingham has been fined by the Health & Safety Executive (HSE) after a worker lost his finger in an accident at work.

A welder at Lander Automotives Limited was working on a machine, one of a variety of jobs as required by production, when his glove became entwined with the drill bit. The employee suffered partial amputation to the third finger on his right hand following the accident work incident on 17th June 2015.

An investigation by HSE found that the automotive company had failed to provide workers with a safe system of work or adequate training. HSE also found that neither a risk assessment nor method statement had been provided by the firm.

After pleading guilty to breaching Section 3(1) of the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974, Lander Automotive Limited, of Clapgate Lane, Birmingham was fined £27,000 and ordered to pay costs of £1,574. The company was also ordered to pay a victims surcharge of £120.
