AEM offers French safety manuals

May 17, 2012 - The Association of Equipment Manufacturers now offers French Canadian versions of its Aerial Platform Safety Manual and Aerial Devices Safety Manual to help equipment manufacturers comply with government language requirements for distributing products in Quebec. The two manuals outline possible responses to basic safety situations that may be found during normal equipment start-up, operation and maintenance.

The new safety manuals – like all AEM safety manuals – are published in
an illustrated format of sensible do's and don'ts. The safety messages
are presented in clear, readable text and illustrations to assist
understanding, and the manual can be used for safety sessions on the job
or in the classroom.

Content includes safety tips concerning the workplace and equipment,
start up and shut down guidelines, and special operating and maintenance
precautions. The AEM manuals are not a substitute for original
equipment manufacturer operation guidelines.

AEM safety and training materials cover more than 40 types of equipment
used in agricultural, construction, forestry and utility applications.
All manuals, videos and related safety and training products are
available online at www.safetymaterials.org in the AEM store. Some
safety materials are offered in downloadable files or in DVD format. AEM
members receive discounts on select materials.

The association's safety-tools program has been in operation for more
than 40 years, aiding accident prevention, improving worker productivity
and reducing equipment repair downtime.
