Printer loses fingertips on guillotine

Editha Bayliss, an employee of printers Sirane Ltd of Telford, lost her fingertips when she was trying to clear a blockage on an automatic guillotine. Telford Magistrates fined the company £6,000 plus £2,800 costs for breaching the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998. It was noted that a risk assessment four months before the accident had identified the need for improved guarding.
