Industrial typesetting machines are used to print text, logos, and other graphics for businesses and organizations. These machines use a variety of fonts and other graphic elements to create a document. They can be used to produce magazines, newspapers, brochures, and other printed materials. Typesetters use these machines to set typefaces, create headlines, add illustrations, and more.
Typesetting machines use a variety of moving parts that can cause injuries if not properly guarded. The most common type of injury is the amputation of fingers or toes due to the sharp edges on the moving parts of the typesetting machines. Other injuries that may occur include fractures, lacerations, and abrasions.
Other serious types of typesetting machine injuries include:
-Striking a type or a piece of equipment with the hand
-Strains and tears from lifting heavy type
-Getting caught between the type and the platen
-Being struck by pieces of type or equipment
It is important for employers to provide proper training to their employees about typesetting machines and the risks involved in using them. Employers should also ensure that there are adequate safety measures in place to protect employees from injury.
If you have been injured by a typesetting machine contact an attorney.
