AEM offers e-book safety manual for hydraulic excavators

Posted By Equipment World Staff On October 22, 2012 @ 10:03 am In Construction News | No Comments

The Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) has published its first safety manual e-book to enable equipment operators to access safety information on mobile devices. This first AEM e-book is an electronic version of the association’s Hydraulic Excavator Safety Manual.

AEM developed the e-book safety manual in response to industry requests. Rather than replace print, this e-book is intended to provide another avenue to reach equipment operators and help them practice safety on the jobsite.

The AEM hydraulic excavator safety e-book features variable type, bookmarks, an ability to embed and e-mail notes, content searching and a low-light reading format.

The e-book format also allows AEM to more easily distribute safety information globally and extend the reach of its safety messaging.

The AEM hydraulic excavator safety e-book is only available in English as an iBook on Apple’s iBookstore. AEM reported plans to add more manuals to the iBookstore, as well as expand into other e-book platforms to increase availability.

To order the electronic version of the AEM Hydraulic Excavator Safety Manual, first install iTunes [1] on your Mac or PC if you do not already have it. Once you have iTunes installed, you can find the Hydraulic Excavator Safety Manual here [2]
