An earthmoving company has been fined $111,000 plus court fees for failing to comply with workplace health and safety laws, exposing a worker to risk of death or injury/illness.

The incident happened in October 2013 when a male worker’s right arm was caught in an unguarded tail drum of the soil screening plant he was operating. The worker apparently tripped and fell onto the machine.

The man’s arm had to be amputated after he was placed into an induced coma.

The magistrate described the company’s actions as extremely serious breaches of basic workplace safety laws, which were foreseeable and avoidable.
