Company fined after worker’s hand crushed in machinery

Northampton Magistrates’ Court heard how the man, working at Symrise Ltd in Corby was cleaning near the screw conveyor machine, when he tripped and his finger came into contact with the moving parts of the machine. The worker suffered a partial amputation to his left hand following this incident.

An investigation by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) into the incident found the vacuum point, for cleaning this screw conveyor did not have adequate guarding to prevent people coming into contact with this dangerous part of the machine.

Symrise Ltd of Fieldhouse Lane, Marlow was found guilty of breaching Section 11(1) of the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 and has been fined £55,000 and ordered to pay costs of £1293.
