The Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) has updated its Grader Safety Manual with new “industry-recognized” pictorials that help communicate effective safety messages to equipment end-users.
The AEM Grader Safety Manual describes preparing for safe equipment operation, safe operation guidelines, and important equipment maintenance. Members of AEM’s Earthmoving & Mining Equipment Council played a key role in reviewing the updated manual to ensure it provides end users with the latest industry consensus best practices for safe machine operation.
The pictorial graphics used in the manual conform to ISO and ANSI standards and are included in the AEM Pictorial Database, a free online resource with more than 140 pictorials that can be downloaded through a variety of graphics and computer-aided design software packages. AEM created the pictorial database as an industry service to help companies communicate effective safety messages through consistent industry-recognized pictorial representations.
AEM safety manuals are industry-consensus safety documents written in clear language presented in an easy-to-follow format. They are a convenient and cost-effective way to provide safety information to operators. (The AEM safety manuals are not a substitute for manufacturer manuals.) All AEM safety manuals, videos, and related safety and training products are available online at the AEM Store. Some safety materials are offered in downloadable files or in DVD format.
