Industrial grain mills are used to mill various types of grains, such as wheat, corn, and rice. They use a variety of different machines to do this, including a gristmill, a pre-grinding plant, a hammer mill, and a roller mill. Industrial grain mills can be very large and complex machines, and they require a lot of maintenance to keep them running properly.
Unfortunately, grain mill machinery can be dangerous if not operated correctly. Injuries caused by grain mill machinery include skin burns, eye injuries, crushing injuries and amputations.
Another common type of injury is from vibration. This can occur when the machinery is moving or when it’s stationary. Vibration injuries can cause pain, numbness, and tingling in the hands and arms. They can also lead to contractures and other long-term problems.
According to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), workers who are injured in grain mills are three times as likely to suffer serious injuries as those who don’t work with mills. These injuries can include amputations and death.
Grain mill accidents can happen in any location where grain is processed or stored, including factories, farms, mills, warehouses and grocery stores. If you are injured as the result of a grain mill accident, make sure to speak with an attorney as soon as possible.
