UK animal feed company fined for breaching safety laws

UK animal feed company A. One Feed Supplements Ltd. was fined £15,000 with costs of £2,594.30 for breaching safety laws after a worker sustained serious hand injuries on the job.

The company was prosecuted for failing to ensure that safety measures were in place to prevent the movement of machine parts before the worker got close enough to clean an air slide after it stopped working. In addition, the worker was not properly trained on how to clean the machinery.
