The Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM), Milwaukee, has updated its Skid Steer Safety Manual and now offers an e-book version in both English and Spanish. The association notes that the print manuals are available in English and a flipbook-style version is available in both English and Spanish.

According to the AEM, much of the skid steer safety manuals’ text has been rewritten and the graphics have been updated to be more inclusive of all styles of skid steer loaders. The safety information contains several additions, including new content on Ultra-Low Sulfur Diesel (ULSD) fuel hazards and hazards involving masked visibility areas around the machine.

“With a variety of information platforms and multiple languages, equipment users and companies can choose what is most convenient for their training needs: electronic or print, English or Spanish, or a combination,” says Jonathan Rydz, AEM’s safety materials manager.

The manuals are available through AEM’s store. The e-book version also is available through Apple’s iTunes Book Store

AEM ‘s safety e-books feature options such as variable type, bookmarks, the ability to embed and e-mail notes, content searching and a low-light reading format. The e-books are not meant to replace print but provide equipment users with more options to practice safety on the jobsite. AEM safety materials are meant to supplement not replace manufacturer materials.
