A decorative panel manufacturing company was fined after a worker was injured when using an industrial saw.

Leeds Magistrates’ Court heard how, in March 2016, an employee of an industrial cutting company was working alongside colleagues using a beam saw to cut sheets of MDF. When he reached into a hole in the fixed guarding, which he believed was a viewing hole, to clear waste offcuts, his fingers became trapped under a drive chain and sprocket. As he pulled his hand out, three fingers were severed.

An investigation found that, while suitable guarding was in place on other areas of the machine, the company had failed to identify the hazard posed by the open hole where access to the dangerous moving parts was possible and injury could be caused.

The company was found to have breached the code of practice for the safe use of machinery in the workplace and was ordered to pay costs of £45,859.
