Robert Cuzick had the middle finger on his left hand severed at the knuckle when his hand came into contact with the moving parts of a tube bending machine at a factory owned by Hydrapower Dynamics - a company formed in 1983 - in Birmingham in January 2011.
At the time of this incident, Mr Cuzick had put his hand on the equipment's clamping arm in order to restart it, when an unguarded part of the machine suddenly moved unexpectedly.
The 53-year-old's finger was subsequently trapped and amputated just above the second knuckle.
Medical professionals were unable to reattach the digit and he therefore had to take more than a month off from his job.
Matthew Whitaker of the Health and Safety Executive observed: "This needless incident has left a man with a permanent, life-changing injury."
