Compensation may be sought by a man who sustained serious hand injuries during an accident at work.
Daniel Campbell needed to have his index finger amputated and received 124 stitches to wounds on his right hand and arm after the limb came into contact with dangerous machinery at premises owned by Robert Cullen Ltd in Glasgow.
This July 2010 work accident occurred when the 29-year-old man was asked to use equipment he was unfamiliar with during a night shift, as its regular operator was off on annual leave.
He subsequently attempted to clear a blockage in the machine when a colleague mistakenly switched it on, leading to his arm becoming trapped for up to 20 minutes.
Mr Campbell then had to spend a week in hospital and the Health & Safety Executive (HSE) established that his employer had not provided him with adequate training on how to use the equipment.
Russell Berry, inspector at the HSE, observed: "This incident could have easily been avoided if the company had ensured a safe system of work was provided."
