Manufacturers and suppliers of machinery and equipment have a legal and moral duty to sell safe products. If a machine is sold in unsafe condition, due to either a manufacturing or design defect and it causes injury to someone, that person has the right to file claim against the manufacturer, supplier or the machine distributor.
The National Safety Council estimates that 10% to 15% of all industrial injuries are caused by inadequately guarded or unguarded machinery. Moving parts should have fixed or interlocked guards in order to prevent serious injury. The technology to eliminate injuries from unguarded moving parts has been available since the 1920s. The failure of machine manufacturers, suppliers and designers to sell properly guarded machines is both legally irresponsible and dangerous, resulting in serious injuries and death.
