Takeaway boss fined over pizza dough roller
A Preston takeaway owner has been ordered to pay a total of Â£1,660 after health after safety inspectors found an unguarded pizza dough roller.
Preston Council health and safety inspectors visited Mr Joe’s takeaway at Church Street, Preston. On a number of occasions they found pizza dough rollers in use without guards.
Owner Sameer Namazi, of Blackburn Street, Blackburn admitted six charges.
Namazi was sentenced to a fine of £600, the council was awarded costs of £1,000 and Namazi was also ordered to pay a £60 victim surcharge.
Craig Sharp, Chief Environmental Health Officer, said: “The guarding prevents employees’ fingers and hands being drawn into the rollers and being crushed.”
