Safety Resources

Safely Home. Everyone. Every Day. It’s more than just a tagline, it’s our mission…no doubt yours too. To help you realize this, Cat has assembled countless resources, references and training materials onto a special website: SAFETY.CAT.COM.

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.

Toolbox Talks

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.


Whether your looking for a safety-related video for a specific piece of Cat equipment or want to start a new operator off on the right foot, Cat has a wide range of videos available online. Many can also be purchased on DVD or VHS for viewing offline.

Safety Checklists

Safety starts before you start your machine! A pre-shift inspection of the machine is critical. SAFETY.CAT.COM provides safety and maintenance checklists for various machine types, along with detailed start-up and shut-down procedures for many of those same machine types.
