Safety Comes First

For the month of September (affectionately dubbed Safe-tember) we’re focusing on safety in the warehouse and anywhere our industrial equipment serves you.

Equipment Engineered for Safety

Designed to not only meet but exceed OSHA and ANSI safety requirements, all Toyota forklifts are equipped with standard safety features such as overhead guards, operator restraint systems, horns, and Toyota’s System of Active Stability (SAS). With Toyota, safety is built in.

Operator Safety Training

As an employer you have a responsibility to ensure that employees have adequate training before the use work equipment. This can be provided by an in-house or external trainer, we offer both courses.

Warehouse Safety

Keeping the areas clear where your forklift operates is essential. Ensure that there is sufficient light and space to avoid collisions and keep floors clear of debris that could cause damage to the undercarriage and brake lines of your equipment.

Stay tuned for quick tips and brush up on your forklift safety this month.
