The importance of replacing old machinery

There is nothing more dangerous than using old and worn out construction equipment. Machines can be dangerous at the best of times. But when they start getting old and start developing flaws then it becomes a threat to the lives of the workers who use these machines. It is common to read in the papers that a worker was involved in a factory accident because of the poor quality of machines he was using. Companies should invest money to replace their old machinery as quickly as possible and refrain from using machines that are past their working lives.
