Chain hoist brakes failing How often does it happen?

A question that came up in a couple of rigging / safety forums recently:
Have you ever witnessed a chain hoist brake fail catastrophically?
It came up in discussions about the need and suitability of double brake hoist hoists.
 
Also raised an interesting side line:
How do you know that the first brake hasn't failed and you are actually running on your second brake thus making it a single brake hoist?
 
I am not a rigger but interested from a risk management perspective.

Can't answer, but would suggest the villains at OHSHA can probably provide some information. If they feel like bothering...
