Worker Entrapped in Machinery due to Company’s Safety Failings

Posted by HSE on

Manchester Magistrates’ Court heard how on 21 January 2016, the employee had been attempting to resolve a jam at the rear of the CNC Uniteam Esseteam Sprint machine, when it began to move. His leg became trapped under the machine.  The interlock guard on the machine had been defective for a period of many years, and the safety gate was always left open.
