Steven Gardiner required a bone graft surgical procedure which took six hours after he badly lacerated his right hand while cutting wood with an unguarded saw blade; in a work accident at Loudon Castle Theme Park, which is located in the Ayrshire town of Galston.
Mr Gardiner used the saw as the machine he usually facilitated for such tasks was out of order and had not been given the necessary training in order to fit a proper guard on the tool prior to starting the job.
Subsequently, the blade came into contact with his hand when it slipped and, as a result, Parkware, his employer has admitted breaching two clauses of the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998.
Therefore, he could now claim work accident compensation from company on the grounds of its negligence.
