It was developed with the sole intent of offering information to parties engaged in selecting and purchasing such a material handling system.

The following information does not constitute a comprehensive safety program, cannot guard the buyer from pitfalls in selecting and purchasing such a system, and should not be relied upon as such. Such a program should be developed, and an independent adviser should be consulted to do so.
