Warning to safeguard employees after double-fracture to finger

HSE is warning employers to ensure they have adequate safeguards in place to prevent access to dangerous parts of their machinery. This warning follows HSE’s prosecution of Metal Containers Ltd (formerly trading as Greif UK Ltd) after an employee’s one finger was broken in two places and another injured in the unguarded rotating part of a chained conveyor.
