Orlando Teen Hospitalized After Industrial Bakery Accident

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on December 14, 2011

A young man was hospitalized with undisclosed injuries recently after getting his hand caught in a machine at an Orlando bakery. Details about the workplace accident are still sketchy, but police say the young man was working at around 12:30 a. m. one recent morning when his hand got caught in the auger of a machine at Aladdin Food and Bakery at 655 S. Golden Rod Road in the Rio Plaza. Firefighters arrived shortly after the accident and worked for around an hour to free the young man’s hand from the machine. They say he was preparing a large batch of bread dough when his hand got caught in the auger. Although they did not disclose the extent of the victim’s injuries, firefighters said that the teen’s fingers were intact when they extracted his hand from the machine. They said that after they freed him from the machine, they wrapped his injured hand in gauze and transported him to Arnold Palmer Hospital for treatment.

Any job involving heavy machinery can be dangerous whether the person is working in a bakery, a construction site, a machine shop or any other workplace. However, strict safety guidelines issued by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration over the last several decades have made workplaces much safer for workers. Regrettably, not all employers adhere to these safety standards and put profits before the health and safety of their workers. It is not yet known whether or not the Aladdin Food and Bakery removed safety equipment to increase productivity, but, if they did, they can be held liable for damages that their negligence and disregard for safety caused this young worker.
