A double Fork Lift Truck Association nomination for Toyota Material Handling UK

Toyota Material Handling UK has again been shortlisted in the coming FLTA
Annual Awards for Excellence, this year appearing in two of the shortlist
categories Safety and Ergonomics.

In the Safety Category the nomination was received for the year-long safety
campaign – Taking Care with Toyota, whilst the Ergonomics Category has
highlighted the BT Optio L series with smooth operator concept as a possible
candidate for the title.

Taking Care with Toyota has been part of Toyota activity throughout the year
and focuses on three key elements; People, Products & Process, in order to
increase safety in the workplace and decrease the risk of accidents.

The BT Optio L series with smooth operator concept has been shortlisted for
innovative design which aims to provide the best possible working conditions
for operators. This product has already won an iF design award for
innovation earlier this year.

The shortlist was announced earlier this month as judges decided on the
highest quality candidates before opening the decision to the public. The
winner of each category is decided by the voting public and will be
announced on Saturday 16th February 2013 at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole.

Tony Wallis, Sales and Marketing Director, Toyota Material Handling UK
commented: "We were really pleased to hear the news that we have been
nominated in the shortlist for not one but two FLTA Awards this year. The
awards are a highlight of the events calendar and as they are voted for by
the materials handling community are a highly thought of achievement for all
suppliers. We are now encouraging as many people as possible to look at the
nominees and cast their vote."

2012. During the day Tony Dyer, Training Academy Manager gave a presentation
