Targeted toward machinery manufacturers, this Webinar will address their legal responsibility for the equipment they produce which extends beyond delivery to a client. Methods by which machinery manufacturers examine, document, notify, modify, or do not modify machines in the field are vital to sustaining their limit of liability in the event a loss occurs involving their machine.
Mike DeRosier, director of safety for AH&T Insurance's Manufacturing Div. will explore a manufacturer's legal responsibility from the design and engineering stage through delivery and legacy status. Discussion topics will include the following:
- What to do when a customer asks a manufacturer to modify safeguards on a machine
- How to handle safety concerns reported from road service technicians
- If modifications should be supplied free of charge
- What to do if an accident occurs on a manufacturer's machine
