Sawmill fined after worker’s leg injured

An East Lothian sawmilling company has been fined after an employee’s leg was seriously injured when he was cutting wood.

On 4 April 2008, Grzegorz Krzaczek, originally from Poland, was working with two colleagues at Windymains Timber Ltd to process wooden logs into planks, using a machine called a drop sorter. At the time of the incident, it was common for the drop sorter to jam two or three times a day.
