Automotive company fined after worker loses finger

21 March 2016

A Birmingham-based automotive company has been fined after a worker lost his finger.

Birmingham Magistrates’ Court heard how a welder at Lander Automotives Limited was expected to work on a variety of jobs as required by production. While he was working on a machine the employee’s glove became entangled in the drill bit. He suffered partial amputation to the third finger on his right hand.

An investigation by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) into the incident which occurred on 17 June 2015 found that the company failed to provide adequate training, a safe system of work, a risk assessment or method statement.

Lander Automotive Limited, of Clapgate Lane, Birmingham, pleaded guilty to breaching Section 3(1) of the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974, and was fined £27,000 and ordered to pay costs of £1,574 and a £120 victim surcharge.
