Section 2: Important Safety Information
Practice Safe Maintenance
Understand procedure before doing work. Use proper tools and equipment. Refer to this manual for additional information.
Work in a clean, dry area.
Place the vehicle in neutral, set parking brake, turn off engine and remove key before performing maintenance. Chock wheels if you must perform maintenance on a slope.
Prepare for Emergencies
Be prepared if a fire starts.
Keep a first aid kit and fire extinguisher handy.
Keep emergency numbers for doctor, ambulance, hospital and fire department near phone.
Wear Protective Equipment
Wear protective clothing and equipment.
Wear clothing and equipment appropriate for the job. Avoid loose-fitting clothing.
Because prolonged exposure to loud noise can cause hearing impairment or hearing loss, it is best to wear suitable hearing protection such as earmuffs or earplugs.
Because operating equipment safely requires your full attention, avoid wearing radio headphones while operating machinery.
Tire changing can be dangerous and should be performed by trained personnel using correct tools and equipment.
When inflating tires, use a clip-on chuck and extension hose long enough for you to stand to one side–not in front of or over tire assembly. Use a safety cage if available.
When removing and installing wheels, use wheel-handling equipment adequate for weight involved.
It is the discretion of the operator and passenger to wear Seat Belts when available.
