Machine Driver's perception of risks and accidents at work with harvesters Komatsu 901, 901TX (English)
Today, there are few studies about risks and accidents at work with harvesters, but each study creates a better basis to prevent future accidents to occur. The purpose of this study was to examine machine driver's perception of risks and accidents at work with harvesters Komatsu 901, 901TX. The focus was on the drivers of the model Komatsu 901 and 901TX, a common thinning and final felling machine in Sweden. Results show that there are deficiencies that are recurring on multiple machines. These deficiencies also have a connection to the actual accidents. Half of the drivers felt that there were defects (flaws) around the handle and the footboard and only one driver had access to the alarm box. The drivers believe the current structure of harvester can be improved but is not always taken seriously when they make their requests for improvements to reduce risks.
