The unnamed 41-year-old production operator was working at the Cardiff base of Celsa Manufacturing (UK) - one of Britain's largest producers of steel with around 500 employees - when he sustained a severe hand injury.
At the time of the incident, he was using machinery to measure the mass and size of hot solid stock passing through the firm's steel callipers section when his hand became intertwined with the moving parts of the equipment.
This resulted in him losing two fingers as well as sustaining serious burns to his skin, meaning he can no longer fulfil his previous role and has instead been given an alternative position with Celsa.
The firm later admitted breaching the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, which could mean the individual will pursue civil damages against it.
