Farm Machinery Accident Claims
Accidents Involving Farm Machinery
Lots of heavy duty machinery is regularly used in the farming industry. This machinery can pose many dangers for workers operating them and as such employers need to ensure that they are well maintained and safe to use. All machinery should be kept in good working order and should be appropriate for the job it is being used for.
A full risk assessment should be carried out for every piece of machinery used. Common accidents involving machinery can include people being injured on exposed parts of the machinery, as well as becoming trapped or crushed by dangerous moving parts. Adequate guarding should be employed on all of the machines to protect workers from sustaining these kinds of injuries.
All workers should be provided with full training before using any machinery. It is important that workers are made aware of how to correctly use all the machinery and they are informed of any dangers that could be present when operating such machinery.
