There was this old Deutschland tv magazine show (captioned in English) -- whose episodes were dated to the late '80s and '90s -- that traveled around exploring different aspects of Germany. During the period when West and East Germany were re-integrating, the host/hostess and film crews ventured to these heavy machinery industrial and roadwork sites in the former communist state.

One of the managers expressed as a consensus view about why they hired women to operate these giant cranes, earth-movers, and other things. Paraphrasing from memory: "Women are initially less accident prone because they're not afraid to ask questions about how to run the equipment and what they need to do in various situations. Whereas male employees new to a specific task tend to posture themselves as knowing everything, afraid to inquire too much because they feel it makes them look weak."
