Subject: Ice cream factory worker suffers broken arm on conveyor belt
An ice cream manufacturer has been sentenced after a factory worker had his forearm broken following an accident at work when it got caught in a conveyor belt.
The work place accident happened when the 20 year old male was working on the ice cream production line when his glove got caught and his arm drawn in to an in-feed conveyor belt. He managed to pull himself free, but suffered two broken bones in his right arms and a dislocated wrist. He was off work for six weeks.
The machine which he was drawn in to was inadequately guarded. As a result, the company was fined £10,000.
