Grant Taylor, Quality and Safety Manager, Toyota Material Handling UK
commented: "Although there have been improvements in the numbers of forklift
truck related accidents, the numbers are still high enough to cause concern.
Safety is a main concern for Toyota and all of our equipment is developed
with safety in mind. As a distributor of materials handling equipment and
partner to our customers, we feel that it is important that we help decrease
the risk of accidents as much as possible."
The Toyota Training Academy works with hundreds of forklift operators per
year, working with people of all standards from novice to trainer and can
adapt courses for those based at one of the Toyota Material Handling UK
depots or those to be carried out on a customer site. The Training Academy
also works with others involved within different areas of business on
related courses; Manual Handling, Safety for Supervisors and the Toyota
Grant added: "A key area for the campaign Taking Care with Toyota has been
the development, production and free distribution of free resources which
aim to decrease the risk of accidents across business operation. All of the

newest resource, the Toyota Forklift Safety Poster, has been specially
produced for this week.
As the newest free resource the Toyota Forklift Safety Poster has been
launched especially for National Forklift Safety Week highlighting 25 simple
and useful tips for working safely with forklift trucks.
