The 19-year-old professional sustained this life-changing hand injury while working as an agency employee for adhesive tape manufacturing firm Latrave at its premises in Wellingborough in August 2010.
At the time of the incident - which occurred when the man was attempting to fix a running printing press - he had only been with the company for a period of three weeks.
Due to the severity of his injury, he had to spend five days in the specialist hand injury unit at the Royal Derby Hospital before then being off work for almost seven months.
In a case heard at Wellingborough Magistrates' Court, Latrave admitted breaching Section 3(1) of the Health and Safety at Work Act.
Mark Austin of the Health and Safety Executive commented: "This inexperienced 19-year-old agency worker has suffered serious, permanent harm because Latrave failed to ensure his safety when operating this machine."
