EXPERT TIPS ON SAFETY FOR ALL
Understanding ANSI Standards Changes
Compliant equipment from JLG
With new ANSI standards for the U.S. expected to be published soon, it’s important to understand what changes are coming, so you can be compliant going forward. These changes include updates to machine design, safe use and training requirements. And they’ll impact everyone from dealers and rental companies to owners and operators. Sign up for updates from JLG to get important information about ANSI standards delivered directly to your inbox.
WORKPLACE SAFETY ROUNDUP
Roof Tarping (Blue Roof) Safety Fact Sheet
With severe weather events happening around the country, the use of “blue roofs” is on the rise. These reinforced plastic tarps provide temporary protection to the roofs of buildings that are damaged during bad weather. Download this fact sheet from OSHA (655 KB PDF) for some helpful guidelines on how to identify and negate hazards, so you can safely install these tarps.
Guidelines for Creating a Fall Rescue Plan
Rescue planning is an important step to take before beginning work on a new project. These guidelines from the National Safety Council (239 KB PDF) will help you apply best practices as you plan for a safe rescue should a fall occur.
Overcoming Obstacles to Achieve Safety Excellence
Often, small businesses must operate with limited safety resources, like less funding and fewer staff on hand who are dedicated to monitoring safety initiatives. This case study from EHS Today looks at one small company to see how its employees rose to meet the safety challenges they faced.

The Redesigned 10MSP: Your New MVP

It also features an 850 lb total vehicle capacity, 5-mph max stowed drive speed and dual-handed controls for an even bigger productivity boost.
