One of the biggest concerns when dealing with moving parts machinery is minimizing any chance of loss of life or limb. Should you have an investigation into an accident involving moving machinery our experts can help you find the answers you need. Some of the key questions we ask are:
- Did the employee take an unnecessary risk?
- Did the employer put the employee at risk?
- Was the equipment poorly designed at the start?
It is paramount that once an accident has occured, the involved employee is interviewed, the machinery is taken offline and all supporting evidence is properly preserved for the investigation.
Reviewing and implementing machine guards where needed helps mitigate the possibility of accidents and allows for the future prevention of similar mistakes.
