Brush up on Hearing Protection Best Practices
Workplace noise protection
According to EHS Today, hearing loss is the most common issue that affects workers. Fortunately, it’s easily preventable once you identify areas of your worksite with high levels of sound. You can do this by using a sound level meter or a noise dosimeter, but what if one of these tools isn’t available? Try standing a few feet away from a coworker and speaking normally. If you can’t be heard without raising your voice, you can assume that the environment is loud enough to require ear protection.
Brush up on other noise protection best practices with these six tips from EHS Today and this pocket guide from OSHA.

Ladders are unstable and prevent mechanics from using two hands to work, which makes these jobs difficult and time consuming. So, the garage foreman reached out to Roger Beckley of Herc-U-Lift for a solution. A few days later, the LiftPod® was in the garage, and the foreman immediately saw that it was “the perfect solution.”

SkyGuard® Becomes Standard Feature on Boom Lifts
SkyGuard Enhanced Control Panel Protection
Starting in January 2017, every new boom lift from JLG will be equipped with the SkyGuard® enhanced control panel protection system. When activated, SkyGuard stops all machine functions in use at the time and temporarily reverses most functions to protect the operator from injury. The reverse functionality is the only feature of its kind in the market.
