In the metalworking industry, hand tools are essential for a variety of tasks. From shaping metal to fabricating parts, hand tools are a common part of the trade. But like any tool, hand tools can be dangerous when used incorrectly or without proper safety precautions in place.
There are a few hand tool injuries that can occur while metalworking. Some of the more common injuries include cuts, scrapes, and punctures. Injuries can also occur if the hand tools are dropped or if they are grabbed by the operator’s hand or an object that is being worked with. When hand tools are used correctly, they can be very safe and efficient for metalworking tasks. However, when tools are not used properly, accidents can occur.
If you have been injured by metalworking hand tools, contact an attorney as soon as possible. Even if the injury does not seem serious at first, it may become more complicated if the tool was defective or if the business that manufactured the tool was not properly safety certified. An attorney can help you determine whether you have a valid case and protect your rights.
