Ubaid Rehman sustained serious injuries to his left hand when his arm was trapped in an edge-polishing machine while he attempted to reach an adjuster knob behind one of the equipment's pinch roller drive shaft at premises owned by Farelly's Metal Polishers last March.
Then, five months later, his colleague Lee Rogers severely injured his right hand when it got dragged in between the belt and tube of a polisher at the same premises in the West Midlands town of Wednesbury.
Consequently, Mr Rehman now has a poor grip and also suffers with numbness in his hand, while Mr Rogers needed extensive skin grafts to repair the damage caused by the machine.
Carol Southerd, inspector at the Health and Safety Executive, commented: "The two serious incidents and resulting injuries could have been avoided."
