Metal forming and working machinery is a type of machinery that is used to create various shapes out of metal. This machinery can be divided into two categories: die forming and casting. Die forming machines use pressure and heat to create complex shapes from metal, while casting machines use liquid metal to create objects. Both types of machines have their own advantages and disadvantages, but they are both extremely versatile and can be used in a variety of industries.
Metal forming machinery accidents can happen in any industrial workplace. Here are some of the most common types of machine-related injuries:
- Falls: Falls can occur from a great height or while reaching for something off the ground. Workers who fall face significant risks of head and spinal cord injury, as well as other injuries.
- Struck by object: Objects striking workers can cause severe head and facial injuries, as well as fractures and other internal injuries. Injuries caused by objects can often be prevented with proper safety precautions, such as installing protective equipment and training workers on how to use it.
- Burns: Burns can result from contact with hot surfaces or materials, including those used in industrial processes. They can be very serious and require immediate treatment to prevent further injury and possible death.
- Injuries from chemicals: Many industrial processes use chemicals that are potentially hazardous if mishandled. If a worker is exposed to a dangerous chemical, they may suffer burns or other injuries from the chemical itself or from the protective gear they are required to wear.
If you have been injured by a metal working machinery, contact an attorney. Metalworking machinery can cause serious injuries, especially if it is not used properly. An attorney can help you file a claim and get the compensation you deserve.
