Fans are a common fixture in factories, warehouses and other places where large volumes of air are circulated. The wind on the outside of the fan moves the air and cools things down on the inside. Fans also help circulate smoke and fumes, which can make work more comfortable for people within the area.
Fans are also used in some medical settings. For example, a fan may be used to help patients breathe easier in a hospital or during surgery.
Industrial fans can cause serious injuries if not used properly. They can be very powerful and can move a lot of air quickly. People who are caught in the fan blades risk serious injury, including amputation. To reduce the risk of injury, industrial fans should only be used when necessary and should only be turned on when the area is sufficiently ventilated. In addition, workers should always wear safety goggles and clothing that will protect them from flying debris.
If you have been injured by a fan, it is important to contact an attorney. An attorney can help you determine whether you have a case and can help you negotiate a fair settlement.
