AEM releases new Crane Safety Video, updated Crane Safety Manual
Companion pieces outline current industry best practices, include OSHA requirements
By Pat Monroe
A new live-action Crane Safety Video and extensively revised Crane Safety Manual from the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) provide machine operators with a well-rounded look at current industry best practices, including U.S. OSHA 1926:1400 crane standard requirements.
The newly released AEM video and manual reflect changes in the crane industry and OSHA crane standards over the last decade since AEM produced its original crane safety manual, and a predecessor animated video.
The live-action format of the DVD-video, and the manual generously illustrated with the latest AEM pictorials, offer a convenient learning/reference program for the industry today. AEM developed the crane safety video and manual together to complement and reinforce their safety messaging.
Crane industry experts working through AEM’s Crane Technical Committee (CTC) provided content development and review. Certified trainers from the International Union of Operating Engineers (IUOE) demonstrated best practices in the DVD-video.
The video and manual outline tips on how to:
- Avoid accidents and create a safe construction site
- Prepare the machine for operation and reduce repair costs
- Prepare the construction site for safe crane operation
All AEM safety manuals, videos, and related safety and training products are available online through the AEM Store (http://shop.aem.org). AEM safety materials offer a high-value, economical way to deliver safety messaging. Some safety materials are available in downloadable files or in DVD format. AEM members receive discounts on select materials.
