Toyota Material Handling UK will be exhibiting at two Health and Safety events in September and October 2012, providing a great opportunity to offer companies advice on manual handling as well as distributing free resources, to help improve safety in the workplace.
For the first time, Toyota will be exhibiting at the Health and Safety Midlands event at the National Motorcycle Museum, Birmingham (Stand 20) on the 12th – 13th September 2012. Following this on the 10th-11th October 2012, Toyota will be returning to the Health and Safety North event at the Reebok Stadium, Bolton (Stand 78).
The Health and Safety events are an important part of Toyota’s safety campaign ‘Taking Care with Toyota’, which has been designed to help companies reduce injury and accidents in the workplace. During 2012 Toyota will be providing customers and prospects with advice on safety in relation to materials handling equipment, plus distributing a range of free safety resources.
Tony Wallis, Sales and Marketing Director for Toyota Material Handling UK said "Promoting health and safety in the workplace is important to Toyota and these Health and Safety events provide the ideal platform for us to demonstrate how our products can help to reduce the risk of manual handling and improve safety at work".
The stands will feature a range of manual and powered pallet trucks designed to help with manual handling. These include a BT Pro Lifter hand pallet truck that requires up to 67% less start up effort than a conventional hand pallet truck, a BT High Lifter hand pallet truck which features an ergonomic work station and the compact BT Levio powered pallet truck, all designed to move loads safely and efficiently.
Tony adds "We have also developed a number of free safety resources that provide tips for forklift safety, manual handling and the correct operation of equipment. The Toyota team on stand at these events will be providing these resources free to visitors along with advice and support on their operation".
