A Halifax based company that builds metal structures has been fined £12,000 after one of its workers injured his hand so badly while operating a piece of machinery that it had to be amputated.
Jamie Raynor, 22 had to have his left hand amputated after the pressing tool of a hydraulic press brake came down on his wrist. The court heard that Mr Raynor had only had 10 minutes of training prior to using the machine for the first time on the day of the accident.
RDB Fabrication and Engineering Ltd was ordered to pay £2,000 costs after pleading guilty to breaching health and safety regulations.
