Various factors can contribute to heavy machinery accidents. While equipment malfunction is one of the most common occurrences which lead to serious injuries, there are some occasions where the blame falls on the operator of the machinery. Whether it’s due to poor training, lack of experience or if they’re under the influence of alcohol or controlled substances, these people must possess the knowledge and experience to operate these machines. Sometimes, industrial companies and manufacturers fail to conduct the proper maintenance or upgrade equipment in order to save money.
The following types of heavy equipment involved in accidents include:
- Dump trucks
- Grapple trucks
- Pipe layers
- Track skidders
