Operation & Maintenance Manuals
The Operation and Maintenance Manual (OMM) is the most important tool in ensuring your safety, and the safety of others on the jobsite. Every Cat machine comes with this manual attached to the seat with a steel lanyard. However, we know that sometimes you need access to the safety-related sections of the OMM when away from your machine. Cat has made these excerpts available online.
One of the most important elements of an effective safety program is conducting regular discussions on safety topics that are relevant to your work. Toolbox Talks are brief outlines on a variety of topics that give the discussion leader a solid foundation for each subject.
