Fine for work injury


A toilet paper manufactur­er has been sentenced in Manukau District Court after a worker was crushed in inadequate­ly guarded machinery. Cottonsoft has been fined $315,000 and ordered to pay reparation­s. WorkSafe says in January 2017 the worker’s arms were caught in rollers and he also suffered rib fractures. An investigat­ion found guarding on the machinery departed significan­tly from industry standards.
