Authorities have imposed significant fines on the company’s manager for breaching safety regulations that led to an employee losing part of an arm.

The case was brought by the Health and Safety Executive for Northern Ireland (HSENI) after a worker needed to have his left arm amputated. On the day of the incident, the employee was attempting to remove a blockage from a holding bin in the blending plant when his arm was drawn into an unguarded screw auger conveyor.
