WorkSafe said the labourer, then 19, was instructed to use the forklift to clear a firebreak of pallets of bricks and debris at a property in Banjup.

He got out to examine the chains after noticing they had become slack and tried to lift them back up onto the wheel.

The chains suddenly became tense and his hands were caught.

An ambulance and firefighters were called when his co-worker returned several minutes later. His hands were freed but seven fingers were amputated

Surgeons were able to reattach two of the fingers but their movement was left severely restricted.

WorkSafe Commissioner Darren Kavanagh said PT Supplies had instructed the worker to use the forklift without the required licence and did not provide him or other employees with any induction or training in safe work procedures.
