Death close by on machinery

Have your say

How terrible to lose a family member on a machine.

The company were fined £200,000, but I think they should have been put out of business for good.

Any machine capable of causing a death must be given respect and they failed to protect the man.

Machines need training and it is not a five-minute training to find out if the operative has a brain.

My own training was a five-year apprenticeship on machines where I was looked over by mother hens and punished when in danger.

Today profit is the only thing companies know.

Death is close for workers on powerful machines that do not respect the human body.
