    Does anyone know if there is some sort of body that oversees equipment safety issues like OSHA does? I had a Cat 277B that burned almost trapping and killing my operator,thank God he was okay.Right after the accident a recall came out saying the latch for the safety window would not work and to bring it in for replacement.I would like to find out who forced Cat to make the recall and how many other instances there were.My feeling is there probably were a lot if a recall was issued.

    On the recall letter there will be a governing body that forced the issue and it will be listed.
    The NHTSA does recalls for cars and trucks.
