The Association of Equipment Manufactures (AEM) has partnered with the National Safety Council as part of National Safety Month to promote construction safety.
AEM offers its Equipment Safety Infographic poster (above) for download.
"We need to wake up every day, 365 days a year, with a commitment to being safety conscious," said AEM safety materials manager James Vos.
AEM offers five tips to help workers focus on safety:
- Take advantage of available safety training
- Be alert; know the work area and the equipment on it
- Follow the rules of safe equipment preparation, start-up, operation, and maintenance
- Set an example and encourage fellow workers to act safely, too
- Make it personal: What is it that is important to you that makes you want to stay safe.
