Risk Management

Controlling Losses

Equipment Operator Training

Struck-by injuries are one of the four most common lost-time injuries across all industries. They occur when a worker is hit by work tools, by materials, by a vehicle, by equipment such as a forklift, by flying debris, or by any other object.







Heavy Equipment Hazards

There are a variety of ways that heavy equipment can present hazards if you don't have the proper protection or controls. For example, you can be:

  • electrocuted if the equipment contacts an overhead powerline
  • crushed if your equipment overturns
  • struck by or crushed by material being moved by heavy equipment
  • crushed if caught between the equipment and a wall or other object
  • run over by a heavy vehicle.
