    The importance of isolating machinery from its power supply before servicing or repairing

    Before carrying out any servicing or maintenance to, or unblocking, any machinery, the machinery in question should always be isolated from the mains power supply. Unfortunately it’s a message that is still not reaching some employees. As a result, they can suffer terrible injuries, and if it’s because the message hasn’t got through, the employer is to blame.

    17-year-old suffers terrible injuries to his arm

    17-year-old employee suffered severe injuries to his arm when he was attempting to clear a blockage of wood shavings from a machine that is used to manufacture horse bedding. He removed the side guard to gain access to the blockage. Unfortunately, as he was removing the debris, the machine was somehow activated and it crushed his am.

    The 17-year-old suffered damage to the muscles, nerves and tendons of his left arm. He was rushed to hospital where he had two surgical procedures plus a blood transfusion. He lost some muscle tissue and required extensive skin grafts to repair the damage.  As a result of his injuries, (which could easily have been life-threatening), the 17-year-old has been left with a seriously damaged arm, which will be with him for life. To this day, he still suffers from PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder).

    No safe working practice in place

    The subsequent investigation carried out by the HSE (Health and Safety Executive) discovered that there was no safe working procedure in place for removing blockages from this piece of machinery, even though it was something that had to be done on a regular basis.

    The injury could have been easily prevented if a safe working practice had been put in place, ensuring that the machine is properly isolated from the mains electricity supply before any attempts are made to clear blockages.

    Employer and managing director fined

    The employer pleaded guilty to breaching Section 2 (1) of the Health and Safety at Work etc. act 1974. The company was fined £18,000 plus legal costs of £6,929. The business’s managing director was also fined £1,800 for breaching Section 37 (1) of the same Health and Safety at Work act.
