Manuals’ new pictorial art aids safety awareness; pictorials available for download

The Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) has updated its Roller Compactor and Directional Drilling Tracking Equipment Safety Manuals with new pictorial graphics that conform to ISO and ANSI standards and are included in the AEM Pictorial Database.

The safety manuals’ updated graphics more clearly reinforce manual safety text, and they harmonize with current machine safety sign and manufacturer manual practices.

The AEM Pictorial Database is a free online resource with 145 pictorials that can be downloaded through a variety of graphics and computer-aided design software packages.
