Food Manufacturer Fined after Worker Suffers Chemical Burns

A food manufacturing company has been fined for safety breaches following an incident in which a worker suffered chemical burns.

Bradford Magistrates’ Court was told that worker Mark McLean was sprayed with a caustic substance when the hose it was being transported in split. As well as suffering chemical burns to his face, Mr McLean was temporarily blinded during the incident at the company’s premises in Bradford.

Following an investigation by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), it was found that before the incident in July 2013, there were no preventative measures taken by the firm.

After pleading guilty to breaching Section 2(1) of the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, Princes Ltd of Weaverthorpe Road, Bradford, was fined £13,000 and ordered to pay costs of £1,323.15.

Following the hearing, HSE inspector Kate Dixon said:

“The company failed to identify and eliminate the risk through good design, instruct employees correctly and instigate an inspection regime of the hoses and maintain the hoses in good working order.

“Had they done so, this accident would not have happened.”
