Worker loses finger

A woman has lost a finger in an incident involving unguarded machinery at an adhesive tape manufacturing plant in Bourne End, Buckinghamshire.

The woman was cleaning the machine when the cloth she was holding became tangled in the machine’s moving parts, pulling her hand into the machine. One of her fingers was badly damaged and required amputation.

Machine guards not fitted

In an investigation led by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), High Wycombe Magistrates’ Court heard that the machinery had not been fitted with a Perspex guard.

The defendant claimed no knowledge of the existence of such guards. However, details on fitting the guards were contained within the machine’s accompanying instruction manual.

Exposure to dangerous machinery – company fined

Technibond Limited was found guilty of breaching the Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998. The company was fined £5,000 and was ordered to pay costs of £1,766

HSE Inspector Stephen Faulkner commented:

“Employers must ensure they prevent access to dangerous parts of
machinery and in doing so they must consider hardware controls
over information, instruction, training and supervision.

“However, where they do rely on these software controls
they must ensure that they are effective to prevent
anyone being harmed by the machinery.”
