Industrial dairy equipment is a type of equipment that is used in the dairy industry to produce milk and other dairy products. The equipment includes tanks, milking machines, and cream separators. The tanks store milk and make it ready for the milking machines. The machines remove milk from the tanks and process it into cheese, butter, yogurt, and other dairy products. The separators take cream off the milk and discard the milk solids.
There are a number of ways that dairy equipment can malfunction, with some resulting in injuries to the operator. The most common types of dairy equipment accidents are:
-Slip and Fall: This is the most common type of dairy equipment accident, involving an individual slipping and falling while working on the machine. This can result in serious injury, including broken bones and spinal cord damage.
-Oversized Object: An oversized object can fall off the machine and hit the operator, causing serious injury. For example, a large piece of cheese that has fallen off the machine can cause head or spinal injuries.
-Broken Machine: A broken machine can cause all sorts of problems for the operator, including being unable to produce any milk or being unable to clean the machine properly. Broken machines also often require expensive repairs, so it’s important to be aware of your machines’ maintenance schedule.
-Machine Failure: Dairy equipment can fail for many reasons, from technical issues (like a broken gear) to natural disasters like floods. In any case, when a dairy machine fails it can cause major disruption for the operators working on it.
If you have been injured by dairy equipment, it is important to contact an attorney. Dairy equipment is dangerous and can cause serious injuries. An attorney can help you file a claim and get compensation for your injuries.
