I don’t think the owners of the company should have paid that fine ! They provided the equipment that “once ” had the safety equipment needed. The “Workers” took that safety device off. Second: the superviser should not have to pay a fine for trying to babysit “STUPID PEOPLE”, he was not the one that hired the employee, human resourses did, Did they pay anything. ? I think our society is relying on insurance too much. In this case the responsibility is on the employee that had the “Accident”. Trusting technology to be safe is a false sense of security, if you are confident that “SAW STOP” will save your fingers, STICK them in the blade and see what happens.
