The Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) has extensively updated its Truck-Mounted Forklift Safety Manual to provide machine operators, maintenance personnel and others on the jobsite with up-to-date industry safety and maintenance information.
The AEM Truck-Mounted Forklift Safety Manual outlines some of the basic safety situations that may be encountered during normal operation and maintenance of the machine and suggests possible ways of dealing with these conditions. The manual is not a substitute for the manufacturer¹s operating manual(s).
The 48-page manual was developed with the help of AEM member manufacturers, including members of the association¹s Truck-Mounted Forklift Committee. It uses an updated layout with the latest AEM pictorials for easier comprehension.
Significant content changes include:
• More accurate information specific to different machine configurations
• New guidance provided for travelling while unloaded
• Expanded instructions for operating on uneven terrain
• Expanded guidance for handling high loads
• A new section explaining load stability factors
AEM's safety and training materials cover more than 40 types of equipment used in agricultural, construction, forestry and utility applications. The association initiated its safety-tools program more than 40 years ago to provide job-proven and time-tested suggestions that promote safety-conscious attitudes and performance. In addition to accident prevention, benefits include improved worker productivity and less equipment downtime for repairs.
