When lifting and transporting the repaired part, the object to be lifted is squeezed due to the improper standing position.

3. Falling injuries from heights

The safety protection facilities are defective, damaged, etc., the protection range cannot meet the production requirements, and the hazard source is not clearly identified. cause an exception to occur.

Failure to take relevant safety measures when working at heights, or the safety measures taken do not meet the construction requirements, resulting in fall injury.
