JLG Industries Inc., an Oshkosh Corporation company and a leading global manufacturer of mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs) and telehandlers, supports National Safety Month in June with new job site safety information on its #DirectAccess blog. Hosted by the National Safety Council (NSC), this year’s National Safety Month focuses on four key themes: 1) Musculoskeletal Disorders, 2) Workplace Impairment, 3) Injury Prevention and 4) Slips, Trips and Falls. Content now available on #DirectAccess addresses these themes. Brand-new safety-related posts will be published throughout the month.
“With the construction industry entering its busiest season, the timing of National Safety Month couldn’t be better,” said Jennifer Stiansen, director of marketing for JLG. “It serves as a great reminder for companies to prioritize safety. JLG urges its customers to create a strong culture of safety and offers a wide range of resource materials to help companies institutionalize safe practices.”
#DirectAccess is categorized by topic, offering content on a wide variety of subjects, including safety, training, product development, technology, parts, service and product support. New content is published weekly on #DirectAccess, supplementing the library of content that has been created since the site’s launch in early 2018. Information is available on-demand from any device.
