May 10, 2004

Michelin North America Inc.'s (MNA) new earthmover tire training progam is designed to raise tire safety awareness at mines and quarries.

"This program will give personnel at all levels the knowledge and tools needed to create a safer work environment, which also will help reduce costly repairs and machinery downtime," says Kaan Demirel, Michelin market segment manager for mining.

The program will cover tire selection, delivery, storage, handling, inspection, repair and other topics, say MNA officials.
