Worker Suffers Permanent Damage to Eye

A building company firm based in Northampton has been prosecuted for safety breaches following an incident in which an employee suffered serious and permanent injury to his eye.

Luton Magistrates’ Court was told that in November 2013, an employee of Steele & Bray Limited was fastening a piece of timber to a steel lintel using a nail gun. A shard of metal broke off and struck a work colleague in the eye, causing permanent damage.

The court also heard that the employee carrying out the work himself was not wearing the correct type of eye protection. He wore a lightweight type of ‘spectacle’, rather than ‘goggles’ produced to absorb impact, which do not offer adequate protection when using a nail gun.

Steele & Bray Limited, of Moore Street, Kingsley, Northampton, pleaded guilty to an offence under Regulation 4(1) of the Personal Protective Equipment at Work Regulations 1992. The company was fined £6,500 and ordered to pay costs of £898.20.
