Risks associated with faulty work equipment

Over the years advanced machinery had been developed to boost up work productivity. However, there are unfortunate situations in which complicated machinery can cause serious harm to workers when it fails to work properly. Below are some of the injury risks associated with malfunctioning machinery:

  • Amputations
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
  • Crush injuries

The severity of injuries workers may sustain from defective machinery could vary depending on the complexity of the machinery they use. The above-mentioned injuries often result in a great financial loss as workers with such injuries are required to undergo serious treatment and wait for some time to recover. Workers should note that they are entitled to get financial assistance in this difficult time that they suffer injuries in the workplace.
