A new Equipment Safety Infographic is available for free download from the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) in recognition and support of June National Safety Month.
The eye-catching poster is illustrated with easy-to-understand industry pictorials and can be displayed in breakrooms, on the shop floor, in the classroom, or anywhere important safety information needs to be shared.
The AEM equipment safety poster stresses the importance of understanding signal words such as danger, warning, caution and notice.
The poster also provides “practice safety” sections including:
- Protect yourself
- Follow a safety program
- Prepare and operate safely
- Maintenance safety
- Before you dig
“The mission of June National Safety Month is to build awareness, to educate and influence behaviors around the leading causes of preventable injuries and death, and the AEM poster is just one way contractors, rental companies and other industry stakeholders can promote a safer work environment,” said James Vos, AEM safety materials manager.
AEM supports safety awareness year-round by offering an extensive array of safety products, including safety manuals and videos, with major equipment types covering aerial, agriculture, compact/portable, earthmoving, forestry, lifting, road paving and utility excavation applications.
