Egger UK employs about 400 people at Hexham in Northumberland
The owners of a Northumberland chipboard plant have been ordered to pay more than £37,000 after two workers were injured in separate accidents.
In one of the incidents at the Egger UK plant in Hexham in 2007, a man had to have part of his leg amputated.
The company, which employs about 400 people at Hexham, admitted six breaches of health and safety legislation at the town's magistrate's court.
It was fined £25,000 and ordered to pay £11,881 in costs.
The first incident took place on 18 May 2007, when a worker was crushed after a set of clamps which formed part of a chipping machine fell on top of him.
The second incident occurred on 7 August 2007, when a worker became trapped between a conveyor and processing machine.
He suffered severe injuries that resulted in his leg having to be amputated below the knee.
A spokesman for the Health and Safety Executive, which brought the case, said: "Employers must prevent or control risks to people's health from equipment they use at work."
No-one from Egger UK was available for comment.
