ACS Engineers, Elizabeth Jensen and Edward Jensen, share insights with a peer reviewed journal article into how to evaluate an operator’s manual based on our experience in engineering & safety!

This machine had an important piece of safety hardware, an item called the swing lock pin, improperly placed by the rental company.
