AEM Offers Bilingual Skid Steer Manual

The Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) has updated its skid steer
safety manual and now offers the manual in a convenient bilingual
Spanish-English version. The manual is designed for operators, maintenance
personnel and other jobsite workers involved with skid steer loaders and has
been updated
to cover track types, as well as wheeled machines.

Skid steer loader manufacturers worked in a cooperative effort through AEM’s
Compact Loader/Compact Excavator Council to research and develop the manual.

The AEM Skid Steer Safety Manual uses easy-to-understand text and
illustrations and a “dos and don’ts” format to aid understanding. The material
focuses on typical daily situations on the worksite involving the normal
operation and maintenance of skid steer loaders and offers sensible suggestions
for dealing with these conditions.

Content of the manual includes general safety tips concerning the workplace
and equipment, start up and shutdown guidelines and operating and maintenance
precautions. The information is intended to
supplement, not replace,
manufacturer operating manuals. The manual is ideal for group safety sessions on
the job or in the classroom, as well as individual usage.

AEM has produced more than 50 product-specific safety manuals and videos. The
association initiated its safety tools program more than 35 years ago to provide
effective, job-proven and time-tested suggestions for promoting safety-conscious
attitudes and performance. In addition to accident prevention, benefits include
improved worker productivity and less equipment downtime for repairs.

The association’s safety manuals, videos and related educational materials
are available from the AEM Store online at
