Explanation of Notices

Danger, Caution, and Warning notations are used throughout this manual to alert the reader to safety concerns which, if procedures are not properly performed, could cause death, serious injury or equipment damage. The boxed Danger, Caution, and Warning notations will always appear before the information or step to which they pertain. These notations are listed below in ascending order of importance. Safety instructions in this operating manual are marked as follows:

Indicates hazards and unsafe practices which COULD result in minor personal injury or product or property damage. Message indicates a low/minor hazard level situation, where a non-immediate or potential hazard or unsafe practice presents a lesser threat of injury to the employee, or which could result in damage to the machine and equipment.

Indicates potential, moderate risk hazards and unsafe practices which COULD result in severe personal injury. Message indicates a medium hazard level situation, with the potential for moderate to major injury, without long term consequences to the employee.

Indicates immediate hazards which WILL result in severe personal injury or death. Message indicates a high/major hazard situation, where an immediate hazard presents a threat of loss of life or serious/disabling injury to the employee.

Generally used to highlight a suggestion or stress valuable information; may also bring attention to a unique operating condition or provide a clarifying statement.

Due to variations found in the operating conditions of certain applications and their working environments, the special notations in this manual cannot identify all potential problems or hazards. Caution and discretion must always be used while operating machinery, especially when using electrical power. Equipment should be operated and maintained only by trained personnel.
