The Association of Equipment Manufacturers has announced the winners of a promotion raising awareness for the AEM industry-consensus safety materials program, conducted as part of outreach from its ConExpo-Con/Agg and AED Summit & Condex booths. Hundreds of attendees registered to receive iPads and iTunes gift cards to download AEM safety manual eBooks. The winners are John Mason, assistant director of construction training, International Union of Operating Engineers in Washington, D.C., and Tom Viskniskki, vice president sales, Sullivan-Palatek Compressors in Michigan City, Ind.

“The IUOE is training the next generation of heavy equipment operators,” says Mason. “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.”

All association safety manuals, videos and related safety and training products are available online at the AEM Store (http://shop.aem.org). Some safety materials are offered in downloadable files or in DVD format. AEM members receive discounts on select materials. The association 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.
