Without question, the Operation and Maintenance Manual (OMM) for your Caterpillar® machine is your most important tool in ensuring your safety, and the safety of others on the job site. Because the OMM is such a critical safety tool, Caterpillar uses a steel lanyard to attach the OMM to the seat of every Caterpillar machine.

We recognize, however, that there are circumstances--like when you conduct a safety talk--where having access to the safety-related sections of your OMM can help you get your safety message across. That's why we're providing thousands of these excerpts on SAFETY.CAT.COM. You'll find excerpts that relate to both new and old Caterpillar machines, and we'll be adding more excerpts on a regular basis.

To search for OMM excerpts by Machine Type, please visit our Product Safety section at SAFETY.CAT.COM/Product.
