The first incident resulted in James Hardcastle, a man of 32 years of age, requiring his left hand to be amputated after it got stuck in a machine - which caused multiple injuries to the limb - at Cranswick Convenience Foods, a food supplier which specialises in meat products.
In addition, soon after this incident, another unnamed worker severed the ends of two fingers on his right hand while using another piece of equipment at the company's depot on the Valley Park Industrial Estate.
The firm has now admitted liability for these accidents by accepting its breach of the
Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998, meaning that both Mr Hardcastle and his colleague could seek personal damages for their respective ordeals.
