Workplace Equipment Defects

People who work in construction or any industrial or trade job regularly use machinery and equipment to perform their work. These workers have been trained to comply with safety standards when using heavy equipment and machinery, to wear protective gear whenever possible and to always follow the directions for use. The most compliant worker, however, can be placed in harm's way when the equipment that he or she needs to do his or her job is not in proper working order.
