Industrial flour mills are used to produce flour from raw materials. These mills can be used to make all types of flour, including white, whole wheat, rye, and other types. The most common type of mill is the roller mill. It is a large machine that uses rollers to crush the raw materials. Other types of mills include the hammermill, which uses hammers to crush the grains, and the grain grinder, which uses a blade to chop the grains.
Flour mill machinery can cause injuries if not used correctly. These injuries may range from skin burns to amputations. Proper use of flour mill machinery can minimize the chances of injury, but accidents still happen.
One common type of injury is called a kickback. This occurs when the speed of the milling motion pushes the operator or object against the blade, causing it to cut into flesh. Other injuries can occur when the miller’s legs are caught in the pulley or the belt, when the miller’s arms are caught in the moving parts, or when debris gets caught in the machinery.
If you have been injured by machinery at a flour mill, you should contact an attorney. The law in this area is complex and you may need the help of an experienced lawyer to make sure your rights are protected. An attorney can review the facts of your case and advise you on what steps to take next.
