The county of Greater Manchester is situated in the north-west area of England and it was the location of an incident where a worker sustained serious chemical burns to his body and resulted in his employer being fined. The employer was a fabric company in Rochdale, the incident occurred at their Newhey factory and they for the incident.
The case was held at Trafford Magistrates Court and the jury heard how an employee who has chosen not to be named, had fallen into a bleach vat on June 3 2014. The worker saw that some pieces of cloth had become stuck in mangle rollers so he climbed up on top of the container. He then slipped and fell into the container of bleach fabric that is a corrosive solution. Chemical burns were sustained to many parts of his body including his lips and nose. The employee was taken to the local hospital where he was treated for his injuries for 3 months.
During the investigation, it was found that the employer had no system in place for using bleaching equipment safely and that is was common for works to climb up on top of the containers when the machines were jammed. No training was given for working with and around hazardous chemicals.
The firm made a guilty plea to the four health and safety breaches issued to them and have made changes to their work practices including the fitting of stepladders, lids and handrails to bleach containers. The company was ordered to pay around £10,000 in fines for the breaches plus prosecution costs. An Inspector has said that the incident could have been avoided had these measures been already implemented.
