Many industries use equipment and machinery on a daily basis, these machines pose countless risks to employees if not handled properly or if mistakes are made. Machinery accidents may leave workers with life altering conditions, amputations, and sometimes even result in death. Employees must be trained to operate all machinery properly and work conditions must be safe.
Workers’ compensation is available for all employees that are injured on the job and it stands as a no-fault insurance policy; workers do not have to prove liability or fault to receive compensation. Machinery accidents are one of the most common reasons employees seek workers’ compensation and may result in injuries like:
- Broken bones
- Electrical burns
- Crushed limbs or digits
