Due to overwhelming demand, the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) has printed a limited supply of new safety decals for rough terrain forklifts. This new decal - "Employer-Certified Operators ONLY" - was developed by AEM and approved by the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). The decal signifies that the machine should be operated only by personnel who have received employer certification of training and evaluation according to relevant OSHA standards.
Equipment manufacturers working through AEM's Rough Terrain Forklift Council developed the decal. It is an example of the importance and commitment that AEM manufacturers place on properly trained operators in control of their products. A PDF version of the decal artwork, which companies can use to make their own customized labels, is also available at no charge from the AEM Store.
The decal is the latest project resulting from an AEM/OSHA alliance promoting jobsite safety. The alliance was formed in October 2007 and brings together the technical expertise of manufacturers with the communication and administrative expertise of OSHA.
Other AEM-OSHA alliance materials include "best practices" bulletins and safety-message key fobs. AEM also produces operator safety manuals for the machines and offers an online database of "industry-recognized" pictorial illustrations for use in safety and training materials.
The safety decals cost $1.50 for AEM Members and $1.75 for AEM Non-Members. There is a .50 discount for orders over 100. Order yours today while quantities last!
