Operators of heavy construction and industrial equipment face some of the most dangerous work conditions in America. When a piece of equipment fails, bringing a machine that can weigh multiple tons or more to an emergency stop is often impossible. Operators behind the wheel or working near the equipment are at the mercy of unstoppable mass and energy.
Coal miners, oil and gas drillers, logging and timbering workers, and construction personnel are constantly working on and around heavy equipment and machinery that can cause fatal accidents and injuries. It is critical that the machinery works as it should. Equipment failures due to faulty design, poor maintenance, dangerous retrofitting, lack of training, and negligent oversight and operation have caused workers serious harm such as burns, electrocution, crushing, and amputations.
