Factory death case delay

THE FAMILY of a man who died working at the Nestle factory will have to wait until December for the company to be sentenced.

Nazar Hussain, 55, of Pear Street, Halifax, died from head injuries after he was trapped in a machine at the Bailey Hall Road factory in 2008.

Representatives from Nestle UK at Bradford Crown Court entered a guilty plea to one charge of failing to ensure the health, safety and welfare of employees.

The charge also stated that they did not provide adequate training on the machinery.

An inquest had previously found that correct training on the use of a safety key could have saved Mr Hussain’s life.

Mr Hussain died after a co-worker restarted the depalletiser machine, not knowing he was inside.

The case was committed for sentence on December 5.
