An accident at work that left a man with a serious hand injury may result in him seeking a compensation settlement.
The anonymous man had his right index finger, thumb and the majority of his middle digit severed when his hand came into contact with moving parts of a machine at premises owned by manufacturing firm KSR in Bromsgrove.
He was an employee of neighbouring company Non-Flam Sawdust - which produces materials to absorb oil and chemical spillages - but had been instructed by managers to work for KSR temporarily.
At the time of the incident, the employee was operating a piece of equipment that places fibres of polypropylene into nylon in order to help the absorbing process.
An investigation into the accident at work established that there was no guard in place to protect operators and both Non-Flam and KSR admitted breaching health and safety rules during a subsequent case at Redditch Magistrates' Court.
This comes after Darren Mawdsley had a finger severed in an incident while working for Halsall Shopfitters in Southport last April.
