A hand injury sustained by a woman in an accident at work could lead to her pursuing a compensation settlement.
The tips of two of Lynda Jackson's fingers were severed when she got her hand caught in the rollers of a gluing machine while she worked at premises owned by CBT Packaging, a firm established more than 30 years ago; in Basildon earlier this year.
Ms Jackson, who was off work for two months after the accident, was using paper to dry parts of the equipment when this snagged on the rollers and dragged her arm into the moving parts of the machinery.
An investigation conducted by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) established that the 57-year-old's employer had failed to offer its workers adequate training on how to clean equipment properly.
Julie Rayner of the HSE commented, "It is simply unacceptable that this lady should be injured at work as a consequence of her employer's negligence."
