Fan checking

In India no one checks their fans regularly for wear and tear.

See attached. Someone I know was sitting right opposite to where his blade flew. It could have hit him on the head. It broke a piece of the wall beam.

All such products like fans etc that can cause death or injury must be subject to stringent product safety and maintenance standards.

Consumers affairs Department and BIS must actively educate consumers. more

This is definitely due to sub standard material and workmanship. more  
Yes, all such products like fans etc that can cause death or injury must be subject to stringent product safety and maintenance standards more  
This seems to be material/workmanship quality issue with the fan. Equally important is to periodically check the hook/nut/bolt/security pin that hold the fan to the ceiling. They are more prone to failure. more  
This is a direct result of poor material which failed due fatigue, it is definitely not due to any installation issues as pointed out by Mr KC Rana. Request to publish the brand of this fan so future accidents can be saved more  
Regular cleaning of the fans can give an indication for any such incident. I don't think Consumer Affairs dept or BIS has anything to do with this unless its a new/not so old fan. more
