Industrial screwsdowns and boxes are used to secure objects together during construction or manufacturing. Screwdowns are made from a variety of materials, including metal, plastic, and fiberglass. They come in a variety of sizes and shapes, and can be installed in various ways. Boxes are similar to screwsdowns, but they are designed to hold specifically shaped objects.
When screwsdown or boxes are used incorrectly, they can result in serious injuries. Most often, these injuries occur when workers try to remove the device without first undoing the screw. This can lead to cuts on the fingers or hands, as well as broken bones. In some cases, the device can even puncture the skin and cause lacerations.
It’s important for workers in these industries to be aware of the risks associated with these devices and to use them safely. If you’re injured as a result of using an industrial screwdown or box, don’t hesitate to speak with an attorney about your rights.
