The unnamed male suffered crush and skin injuries to his index and middle fingers on his right hand when it got trapped in a dough moulder as he worked at Belinda's Bakery in Hampshire in November last year.
This piece of machinery has two automatic rollers that drive the dough to be crafted into the right shape and size and the individual's hand came into contact with these moving parts.
An investigation into the incident by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) established that no guard was in place on the equipment, meaning the worker could sue his employer for their negligence.
Craig Varian of the HSE commented: "The risks from these types of machines are well known in the industry and this incident could have resulted in far worse injuries."
Recently, an anonymous employee of A.One Food Supplements suffered two amputated fingers during an accident at work.
