Lifting Equipment Assessment


Two hand injuries have cost bakery Bells of Lazonby more than £70k The workers were injured in two unrelated accidents at Penrith-based Bells of Lazonby last year. Carlisle Magistrates Court heard how a worker lost the top of the right-hand middle finger on January 26 last year, after it caught the moving blade of a dough-dividing machine. The second incident occurred on the March 29 when an employees left index finger made contact with the cutting jaws of a wrapping machine. Failed to equip guarding A Health and Safety Executive (HSE) investigation found the company failed to install guarding on the machinery to prevent incidents like this occurring. Bells of Lazonby Ltd of Edenholme Bakery, Penrith pleaded guilty to breaching two charges of Regulation 11, of the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998. The firm was fined 40,000 for the first offence and 30,000 for the second offence and ordered to pay costs of 7,990. Speaking after the hearing, HSE inspector Leona Cameron said: This case demonstrates the importance of checking and assessing all dangerous equipment and machinery to prevent injuries to employees operating such machinery. Food firms fined The prosecution follows a number of food firms fined for health and safety breaches, which led to injuries to employees hands. Bristol-based The Butchers at Clifton was fined 18,000 in February, after a worker suffered deep lacerations to his hand while cutting beef bones on a band saw. February also saw polythene film manufacturer Total Polfilm Ltd which supplies the food and agricultural industries fined 6,000 after an agency workers hand was trapped in machinery.

Nurse work comes with injury risks Nursing graduates face the dangers of heavy lifting, and we know that even the best body mechanics will not protect them from cumulative, debilitating musculoskeletal injuries, said Lucy Marion, dean of the College of Nursing at Augusta University. The College of Nursing advises all its graduates to seek safe work environments to protect themselves from injury. Registered nurse Margie Nicolaus has been practicing for 39 years, always in a hospital setting. She now works at St Marys Hospital and the Athens Nurses Clinic. You know, its really hard physical work, its not just mental, its also a lot of physical work; we have to lift patients, help patients in and out of bed, she said. So injury happens. Some nurses are hurt in one specific incident, as when a patients transfer from a gurney to a bed goes wrong. Other nurses suffer the cumulative effects of lifting and moving patients. Many nurses, but not all, recover from their injuries after taking a break There have been other nurses or technicians who have injured their backs so badly, Cummings said, they werent able to work anymore. And patients are getting heavier. The increasing average weight of the population means an extra risk to nurses who have to handle patients.
