AEM Updates Digger Derrick Safety Manual

July 17, 2017

The Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) updated its Digger Derrick Safety Manual, which features key terms for calculating load capacities and information on lifting, pole setting, digging operation, and personnel platform safety.

The latest version of the manual features updated safety symbols and pictograms as well as a cleaner format. Manual content was developed and reviewed by AEM manufacturer members through the association’s Manufacturers of Aerial Devices and Digger Derricks Council Engineering Committee.

The Digger Derrick Safety Manual, and all AEM safety manuals, are available on AEM’s website.
