The Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) recently announced the winners of a promotion it held to raise awareness for AEM’s industry-consensus safety materials program.
AEM conducted the promotion as part of the safety outreach from its exhibit booths at ConExpo-Con/AGG 2014 and the 2014 AED Summit & CONDEX trade show.
Hundreds of attendees registered, and the winners received iPads and iTunes gift cards to download AEM safety manual eBooks. The winners were:
• John Mason, assistant director of construction training, International Union of Operating Engineers (IUOE), Washington, D.C.
• Tom Viskniskki, vice president sales, Sullivan-Palatek Compressors, Michigan City, Indiana
Mason noted that AEM safety materials are included in IUOE training programs, and Viskniskki added that AEM safety manuals offer a valuable service to Sullivan-Palatek.
“The IUOE is training the next generation of heavy equipment operators,” Mason said. “Currently, we have over 6,000 registered apprentices at our 100 training sites in the U.S. and Canada. By integrating the AEM materials into our training curriculum, we know that these operating engineers will be among the safest, most productive skilled-tradesmen in the world.”
“Sullivan-Palatek currently utilizes AEM safety manuals in conjunction with their sales of portable air compressors and air tools,” said Viskniskki. “This is a valuable service provided by AEM."
All AEM safety manuals, videos and related safety and training products are available online at the AEM store. Some safety materials are offered in downloadable files or in DVD format. AEM members receive discounts on select materials.
AEM also maintains a pictorial database developed to assist designers and technical illustrators in communicating effective safety messages through the use of consistent industry-recognized pictorial representations.
