Noon Products fined after worker suffers hand injury
Posted by Jason Nicholls
Food manufacturer Noon Products has been fined after a worker suffered a hand injury.
The 35-year-old does not want to be named had two fingers on their right hand severed to below the knuckle in July last year.
Westminster Magistrates' Court heard the worker was using a tall rack with wheels to move trays of products, featuring a custom-made sheet metal top cover that had been unsuccessfully trialled.
The sharp edge of the cover landed on his right hand, cutting through his fingers and knuckles.
HSE inspector Neil Fry said: "Thankfully this incident was not symptomatic of widespread failures at Noon Products Ltd. The company has a proactive commitment to health and safety, and is keen to instigate improvements."
Mr Fry explained that a worker was seriously injured, serving a reminder that businesses need to be vigilant at all times.
He added that workers need to be properly trained, while all regulation should be adhered to.
