Crisp company fined for safety failings
Date: 10 January 2017
Northampton Crown Court heard how an agency workers
hand came into contact with shears and three fingers on his right hand were
severed, below the first knuckle.
An investigation by the Health and Safety Executive
(HSE) found that the guard on the machine was not secured at the time of the
incident. The company had not implemented a formal monitoring system on this
machine, to ensure that all guards were in place and secure before the machine
Tayto Group Limited pleaded guilty to breaching
Regulation 5 of the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998
(PUWER), and was fined £330,000 and ordered to pay costs of £11,752.23.
Shabbir says: “These life-changing injuries were easily
preventable. Ensure you have adequate systems to ensure that guards used to
prevent access to dangerous parts of machinery are in place and secure before
machinery is put into use.” For further information on work equipment and
