The unnamed 27-year-old suffered fractures to his ribs and arm while being trained to use a re-winding machine at premises owned by DS Smith Packaging - a firm with 10,500 employees globally - in Louth in June 2010.
At the time of this incident, the professional was being shown by a colleague how to safely attach cardboard to the equipment's spool when his fingers became trapped and he was thrown over the machine.
Due to the severity of his injuries, the man was off work for around a year but now has several pins and plates in his damaged arm.
Emma Madeley, Health and Safety Executive inspector, commented: "There was nothing to prevent the machine being started before people were clear of the danger zone ... that working practice has now been changed."
