WorkSafe highlights industry concerns as workers lose fingers to unsafe machinery

WorkSafe's calling for businesses to boost safety standards as more workers lose fingers on unsafe machinery.

The courts have issued more than half a million dollars worth of fines to three manufacturing businesses, since mid-March.

They involve three people who lost multiple fingers in 2022.

WorkSafe Principal Inspector Mark Donaghue says these companies should have had more safety precautions in place.

"What we do find is that some safety systems can be bypassed - or may not be in place at all - for various reasons."
