What Can Happen With Heavy Machinery In The Workplace?
Many industries rely on heavy equipment. The women and men who operate that equipment should be able to rely on safe equipment and proper safety measures. Construction and other industrial workers have a higher risk of serious injury or death.
The top industries that rely on heavy equipment operators include:
- Road and bridge construction
- State and local government projects
- Utility companies
- Manufacturing and warehousing
Consider the following types of equipment:
- Front end loaders

Many of these machines have multiple moving parts that can cause harm to workers. It is vital that employers properly train their workers. They should also regularly inspect and maintain all equipment to prevent malfunctions.
