Industrial hydraulic bridge and gate machinery is a type of equipment used in industrial settings such as transportation, mining, construction, and power generation to move and open large structures. These machines use a variety of different mechanisms to open and close the gates, including pistons, ropes, and hydraulics. They are often used in facilities that require quick access to large areas, such as factories and warehouses.
There are many types of industrial hydraulic bridge and gate machinery injuries. Some common injuries include falls, getting caught in the moving parts, being struck by debris, and being crushed. Injuries can happen at any time, during any stage of the machinery use process.
In 2008, an accident occurred at a hydraulically operated bridge in China. The bridge collapsed, causing more than 60 people to fall into the river below. Many of the victims were severely injured and some died as a result of their injuries. The accident caused massive economic losses for the country and highlighted the need for increased safety measures for hydraulic machine operators.
In 2010, another accident occurred at a hydraulic bridge in India. This time, the machine malfunctioned and caused the bridge to collapse. Thirty-six people were killed as a result of the accident and dozens more were injured. The government of India responded by instituting new safety regulations for hydraulic machines.
Both of these accidents highlight the importance of taking proper safety precautions when operating hydraulic bridge and gate machines. Operators should always wear protective gear and adhere to all safety guidelines in place.
If you have been injured as a result of someone else’s negligence, don’t hesitate to contact an experienced lawyer who can help you get the compensation you deserve.
