Oct. 26, 2012 – The Association of Equipment Manufacturers has published
its first safety manual e-book to enable equipment operators to
conveniently access safety information wherever they carry their mobile
devices. This first AEM e-book is an electronic version of the
association’s popular Hydraulic Excavator Safety Manual.

AEM developed the e-book safety manual in response to industry requests.
It is not meant to replace print but provides another avenue to reach
equipment operators and help them practice safety on the jobsite. The
AEM hydraulic excavator safety e-book features user-friendly options
such as variable type, bookmarks, the ability to embed and e-mail notes,
content searching and a low-light reading format.
 
The e-book
format also allows AEM to more easily distribute safety information
globally and extend the reach of its safety messaging.
 
The AEM
hydraulic excavator safety e-book (English only) is available as an
iBook on Apple’s iBookstore. AEM plans to add more manuals to the
iBookstore, as well as expand into other e-book platforms to increase
availability.
 
To order the electronic version of the AEM
Hydraulic Excavator Safety Manual, first install iTunes on your Mac or
PC if you do not already have it. Once you have iTunes installed, you
can find the Hydraulic Excavator Safety Manual there.
 
For print
versions of the AEM Hydraulic Excavator Safety Manual and all AEM safety
manuals and materials, visit the online AEM Store at

All
AEM safety manuals outline typical worksite and equipment hazards as
well as safe practices in equipment preparation, operation, maintenance
and transport. The guidelines are presented in a concise and
well-illustrated layout for easy comprehension. AEM safety manuals are
not a substitute for manufacturer manuals.
 
AEM safety and
training materials cover more than 40 types of equipment used in
agricultural, construction, forestry and utility applications.
