Employers fined over workers' injuries

From Checkpoint, 6:16 pm on 25 May 2011

A worker loses the tips of two fingers when he accidentally starts up a saw. Another is killed when he's dragged into a large pulp press in Kawerau. These are just two of the 12 cases where employers have been prosecuted in the past six months after workers were injured because machinery didn't have proper safety guards.
