Chicago Tool Injuries Attorneys
Accidents Caused by Tools at Work
Electric tools and large machines make manual labor significantly more effective. However, with the extra power and moving parts, there are also many additional dangers associated with such tools. Although there are numerous safety regulations put in place by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), many of them are ignored in an effort to make the process more efficient. For example, many tools work more efficiently when their guards are removed. In addition, other power tools seem so self-explanatory that employers neglect to provide the training that is necessary.
