Miller Foods Ltd, trading as Remarkable Tortillas

Ordered to pay reparation of $52,282.97 for a breach of s36(1)(a) of the HSW Act after a worker's glove became caught in the conveyor of a tortilla press, drawing his right hand and arm into the hot oven. No risk assessment had been carried out for the machine, the machine was not adequately guarded, there was no procedure for clearing jammed tortillas, and staff had not been trained in emergency procedures, No fine was imposed for reasons suppressed by the court, but the court said that if a fine had been imposed it would have been $337,500.
