It is essential that individuals observe all safety rules and precautions when operating, maintaining or repairing a product in order to reduce the risk of injury or death. Taking the time to read and fully understand operation, lubrication maintenance and repair information can help prevent hazardous situations from occurring.
Having proper training and tools for any task will also help minimize potential risks associated with a job. If safety warnings are not heeded, serious harm may come to those involved. It is important for people to be aware of “Safety Alert Symbols” which identify dangers as well as “Signal Words” such as “DANGER”, “WARNING” or “CAUTION“, which accompany them on products. Following these directions can ensure safe practices are followed at all times.
Caterpillar Warning Symbols And Meanings
The safety alert symbol is a warning sign that alerts individuals of potential hazards and encourages them to take necessary precautions. This symbol is often accompanied by text or a pictorial representation to further explain the hazard. It is important for individuals to be aware of their surroundings and recognize when they may be in danger. Caterpillar has provided warnings in this publication as well as on products, which are not all-inclusive since it cannot anticipate every circumstance that could put someone at risk.
When performing any job related to the product, customers should ensure that proper procedures are followed so as not to cause damage or injury. Furthermore, Caterpillar recommends using genuine replacement parts with equivalent specifications when replacing components within their products; failure to do so can result in premature failures or even death if proper care isn’t taken while operating the product.
It is imperative for individuals who work with these types of machines and equipment familiarize themselves with safety symbols, understand what each means, follow manufacturer instructions closely and observe general safety rules whenever possible; doing so can keep everyone safe from harm’s way.
