Designing In Safety
Bushman Equipment, Inc. addresses product safety issues during the earliest discussions with our customer.
- For safe operation, every product must be designed for the specific application. Our product literature and safety materials frequently remind customers to use the equipment only for the designated purpose.
- Any equipment that is damaged or has been in an overload situation should be inspected by the original manufacturer and re-certified for continued use at the rated capacity.
- Any modifications to the original equipment must be approved by the original equipment manufacturer prior to modification. Products modified by customers or third parties may not meet safety standards or safe-use guidelines. Such modifications also invalidate warranty coverage.
- Parts Books are shipped with each piece of equipment. They contain detailed information about installation, inspection and maintenance procedures, component parts and a copy of Bushman Equipment, Inc.’s warranty.
- Bushman Equipment, Inc. engineers specify which Product Safety Labels are on each piece of equipment. Customers also receive an Identification and Safety Standards (ISS) sheet that shows the location of each decal. Free replacements are available if needed.
- Operator Pocket Safety Manuals are available for many Bushman Equipment, Inc. products. Designed for handy reference, these manuals are small enough to fit into a shirt pocket.
