In support of June being National Safety Month, the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) created a colorful and informative equipment safety infographic for free download.
The poster is illustrated with easy-to-understand industry pictorials and can be displayed in breakrooms, on the shop floor, in the classroom, or anywhere important safety information needs to be shared.

The AEM equipment safety poster stresses the importance of understanding signal words such as danger, warning, caution and notice.
The poster also provides “practice safety” sections including:
• Protect yourself
• Follow a safety program
• Prepare and operate safely
• Maintenance safety
• Before you dig
“The mission of June National Safety Month is to build awareness, to educate and influence behaviors around the leading causes of preventable injuries and death, and the AEM poster is just one way contractors, rental companies and other industry stakeholders can promote a safer work environment,” said James Vos, AEM safety materials manager.
