A large number of machines are in use at any given time on a job site. Injuries can occur when machines are misused, when they are not properly maintained or break, or when they lack warning labels, instructions for use, or necessary safety features.
For example, a Consumer Product Safety Commission investigation discovered that many spray guns did not carry warning labels or safety instructions for use. Because of the high velocity and pressure used to spray paint, if a painter’s hand or fingers are in the way, the paint can penetrate into the worker’s tissue, causing permanent damage that may require amputation.
Careless use of machines by one worker can pose a safety hazard for other workers in the area when, for example, a piece of equipment falls onto another worker, a nail gun discharges recklessly, or a machine malfunctions. If safety procedures are not enforced, workers can also be placed at risk due to the negligence of the employer.
