AEM provides free pictorial database

The Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) has completed phase one of a database of “industry recognized” pictorial illustrations for voluntary use in the design of equipment safety signs, manuals, and other training materials.

AEM developed this database to promote greater consistency and clarity among pictorial images so they are more recognizable by industry workers, thus enhancing safety. The pictorials are offered free of charge to anyone.

The database can be easily accessed via the association's website ( and is searchable by categories and keywords. It currently includes almost 100 pictorials that are common to many industry segments and product lines, and covers both hazard identification and avoidance.

For more information on the pictorial database, phone AEM's Dan Moss at 414-298-4149 or e-mail [email protected].
