  • Crush injury fines total $35,000 as WorkSafe hits dangerous machines - Work Safety Hub
    WorkSafe hits dangerous machines Tweet Two businesses have received fines totalling 35 000 after a contractor had his thumb crushed in an unguarded machine The two prosecutions at the Broadmeadows Magistrates Court come as WorkSafe begins a 12 month campaign targeting dangerous machines Regional Director Shane Gillard said removing guarding from a machine was a recipe for disaster and urged businesses to revisit safety practices around machinery before it was too late Guarding is there to protect workers from being seriously hurt or killed yet we frequently come across incidents where someone has suffered a serious injury that could easily be prevented he said Campbellfield manufacturing company Greg Sewell Forgings faced the Broadmeadows Magistrates Court this week pleading guilty to failing to provide instruction training and supervision The worker s thumb was crushed on 29 September 2010 while operating an unguarded operating press after a safety device that stops the machine from working when guarding is removed was taken off The court heard the device was removed by co accused sub contractor Leslie Grinter who was engaged by Greg Sewell Forgings to carry out work and training at the site Mr Grinter spent 10 minutes removing the device on the day of the incident then trained the worker to work the press without the guard Mr Grinter later told WorkSafe investigators he was aware the press was being used by the worker without the interlocked guard WorkSafe s investigation found the company did not know the interlocked guard had been removed by the sub contractor but failed to provide proper supervision instruction and training Greg Sewell Forgings was this week fined 30 000 without conviction while Mr Grinter received a 5000 fine in May after pleading guilty to failure by a self employed person to ensure people are not exposed
