  • DaveG, 2 fire crews, 2 ambulances and the air ambulance were called to the factory, one shouldn't be so flippant until the H&S agency visit the site. However, poor training and the removal of safety guards, tends to be the usual suspects...most common in non-union workplaces.

  • Times like this, it pays to belong to a union in the food industry. Hope the girl don't suffer any long-term effects.
