Investigating Power Tool Accidents
Employers often blame workers for injuries involving power tools. In many cases, however, the fault lies elsewhere. Here are some examples:
- The employer may not have provided proper training in how to use the tool safely
- The tool may contain unsafe modifications (such as removal of a safety guard)
- The tool may be defective
- The tool may contain inadequate warnings
- The equipment was improperly maintained
