Know the equipment and the worksite before you operate. Always wear proper clothing and use personal protection equipment as required for the job. Remember: safe operation begins with the operator.
“Rent It Safely” brochures outline general safety precautions and recommendations for specific machines. Although these resources contain many valuable guidelines, the Operation and Maintenance Manual, Operator’s Handbook, Safety Manual and machine signs (decals) provide proper operation and maintenance instructions. Failure to follow warnings or instructions can cause serious injury or death.
