Be Aware of Signal Words
Look for the Safety symbol throughout this manual. The SAFETY ALERT SYMBOL indicates there is a potential hazard to personal safety involved and extra safety precaution must be taken. When you see this symbol, be alert and carefully read the message that follows it. In addition to design and configuration of equipment, hazard control and accident prevention are dependent upon the awareness, concern, prudence and proper training of personnel involved in the operation, transport, maintenance and storage of equipment.
Signal words designate a degree or level of hazard seriousness. The signal words are:
DANGER indicates an imminently hazardous situation which, if not avoided, will result in serious injury or death. This signal word is limited to the most extreme situations, typically for vehicle components that, for functional purposes, cannot be guarded.
WARNING indicates a potentially hazardous situation which, if not avoided, could result in death or serious injury, and includes hazards that are exposed when guards are removed. It may also be used to alert against unsafe practices.
CAUTION indicates a potentially hazardous situation which, if not avoided, may result in minor or moderate injury. It may also be used to alert against unsafe practices.
