Leatherworking is a craft that dates back for centuries, and it is still a popular activity today. However, like any other craft, there are risks associated with leatherworking.
Leather working machinery can be very dangerous if not used correctly. While it is a popular choice for many clothing industries, there are risks associated with using leatherworking machinery such as slips and falls, crushing, cuts and bruises.
To reduce the risk of injury, it is important to follow the safety guidelines provided by the manufacturer. Additionally, it is important to have a qualified person inspect the equipment regularly to ensure that it is safe for use.
There is always the potential for serious injuries when working with leatherworking machinery. Many of these injuries are due to the operator not using proper safety procedures and equipment. Here are some examples of injuries that can occur when working with leatherworking machines:
-Strangulation: This can happen when the operator’s clothing gets caught on the blade or other moving parts of the machine.
-Cutting: Leatherworking blades can easily cut through skin and flesh if not used properly.
-Burns: Hot metal surfaces or sparks from the machine can cause severe burns.
If you have been injured by leather working machinery, it is important to contact an attorney as soon as possible. An attorney can help you understand your rights and options, and will work to get you the compensation you deserve.
