Workers hand pulled into Coconut Shell Grinder

Workers hand pulled into Coconut Shell Grinder at Factory in Pattaya


Over the weekend, a worker at a Coconut Factory in the Nong Pla Lai area lost four fingers on his right hand following an accident with a machine used to grind down coconut shells. Khun Suchart aged 29 was working alone at the time of the accident so the exact cause was unknown as he was unable to speak with others due to the extreme pain caused by his hand being pulled into the machine. Rescue Workers were called to the scene and carefully bandaged the hand and prepared him for transport to Hospital where Doctors have yet to confirm if he will lose his entire hand. His four fingers cannot be reattached. Fellow Workers expect this to be a momentary lapse in concentration as he is known as a good worker with a clean safety record.
Anyone who goes to a psychiatrist should have his head examined.

It's surprising that could happen with so much health and safety regulation and rigid enforcement thereof.

I sometimes watch a programme on History Channel called "Pawn Stars".  It is a programme about a pawn shop owner in mid west USA.  Every week hopeful  punters bring in their favourite piece of junk hoping to be offered a good price.  One week a hopeful arrived with an ancient  "corn shucker".  This is a device designed to strip sweetcorn from the husk and it looked very much like the coconut crusher shown above.  The pawn shop owner really liked it but he told the punter that he was not able to buy it.  He was really scared that a customer might buy it, take it home and have a bad accident.  Whereupon his ass would be sued off and that would be the end of the pawn shop.   

So this is the other extreme of the elth n' safety spectrum.  It is a pity there is no sensible middle ground.
