AEM Updates Skid Steer Safety Manual

The Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) has updated its skid steer safety manual and now also offers the manual in a convenient bilingual Spanish-English version. The manual is designed for operators, maintenance personnel and other job site workers involved with skid steer loaders, and has been updated to cover track type 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 “do’s and don’ts” format to aid understanding. The material focuses on typical daily situations on the work site 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.

The skid steer safety manual is available from the AEM store online at
