EXPERT TIPS FOR KEEPING WORKERS SAFE
Safety Tip: Spring Clean to Eliminate Trip Hazards
OSHA
According to OSHA, the majority of workplace accidents stem from slips, trips and falls. This spring, set aside time to clean away the muck and grime from winter and to declutter your workplace. A cleaner job site is easier for your team to navigate! To learn more about preventing trips and falls, visit OSHA.gov.
How TrueBuilt Makes Painting Safer with a JLG Compact Crawler
A simple task like painting a stripe on a wall can be a substantial challenge in a complex environment. When the owner of Cobb Theatres in Leesburg, Va., wanted to add a 3-inch by 280-foot champagne accent to the lobby, getting a painter up 30 feet into the air—over a staircase at one point and around decorative features at others—seemed impossible with a ladder or even scaffolding.

Jesse and Ben Truesdale, who own TrueBuilt, LLC, looked to the JLG X700AJ compact crawler boom to help their painters rise above the challenge when more traditional options failed.
The compact crawler boom nimbly navigated the unique space, and the articulating jib gave painters the freedom to get into perfect position for their work. With battery-power and indoor-friendly tires, the compact crawler helped them finish the job without having to ventilate fumes or risk damaging the floor.

Read the full case study to learn more about how the JLG X700AJ stole the show and how it can do the same for your next job.
