Workplace Accidents Caused by Defective Equipment and Machinery: Who is Liable?

Date: Tuesday, May 30, 2017
Time: 9:00 - 10:00 a.m. ET

Machinery and equipment are used in many workplaces, exposing workers to occupational risks.

Equipment that is not properly designed and maintained can be equally as dangerous as machinery that is improperly used. Detecting and repairing faulty machinery is an important element of safety.

Do you have the proper safeguards in place to prevent workplace accidents where machinery is involved? Join our panel of occupational health and safety experts as they discuss:

  • Common accidents with industrial equipment and machinery
  • Who has liability for equipment and machinery issues?
  • What can employers do to mitigate and manage the risks?
  • Are procedures and training enough?
  • Best practices for a safe work environment
