 Looked at it out of the window, as I can't drive it at the moment due to my hand being foobared Crying

 

what happened mate?

 

  Got my hand caught in my Printing Press @ work mate Doh!. Luckily I managed to keep all my fingers (thanks to surgery from the best hand specialist in the north of England), the middle one got the worst of it, although all my hand was black blue and swolen. The first part of my middle one is now mostly made of plates and pins, but I am just happy they're all there.

sounds terrible i cant imagine how you managed to get your hand in the Printing Press..really sorry mate hope everything goes well..and they should pay for their lack of safety right?

 bigjim-85, made a nice mess of your hand, glad you didn't loose any fingers.


I take it the press was on? in which case you hand was near it why??


Although I'm one to talk, I could have sliced the top of my finger off with an angle grinder not to long ago not looking at what I was doing.


 


And today for me, I've not put any miles on my car. Does that count? [:P]

rOcK_oN: I am on full pay for as long as it takes before I can go back to work, then I am on light duties for as long as it takes also, so there is no point claiming and making it awkward at work for the sake of a couple of grand in my eyes. All sensores were checked and working so it's just one of those accidents.
