Dangers of Improper Maintenance
The frequency and kind of maintenance that must be performed on a particular tool or machine is typically specified by the manufacturer. Unfortunately, the manufacturer’s suggestions may not be heeded and workers may be left to bear the effects of that oversight. The following are some of the potential consequences of improper maintenance of construction equipment:
- Electrical shock or electrocution
- Severe lacerations
- Crush injuries
- Electrical, contact, flame, or chemical burns
