#3 Reads like this happened in GB. For all their governmental work rules, this accident is a cluster &^%$. I looked at an accident in the U.S. where a worker was providing OJT for another worker. He instructed the newby to not stick his arm in the machine "like this" and proceeded to demonstrate by sticking his arm in the panel opening--where I might add there were rotating and moving parts. He lost his arm.

All the warning labels in the world can't beat sheer stupidity.

#12 I once worked Maintenance for Goodyear, they assigned me to Build a rack hanging from the ceiling, and were amazed when I used a Vise Grip to hold on, (There was NOTHING to hold on to)I guess it never occurred to them that I might fall.
Workwd fine.
