This resulted in her right arm being amputated from up to the elbow. The female worker had been instruced by her manager to clean the machine when it when it was not moving, however on the day of the accident the worker began cleaning the machine whilst in motion. The employer was held to blame, as they had not taken all relevant steps to prevent the worker accessing dangerous parts of the machine when in use.
