TECHNOLOGY IN ACTION Helping you maintain vigilance in the warehouse

Materials handling and the warehouse environment are areas that require constant vigilance in order to maintain a safe working environment. Toyota Material Handling recognises the need to keep safety at the fore whether as part of forklift and reach truck design or in the environment within which the trucks operate.

Nowhere is this safety focus more apparent than in Toyota’s safety innovations. Over twenty years ago, Toyota introduced the pioneering System of Active Stability (SAS). The patented system has helped to protect countless operators, loads and protected against damage to the trucks themselves. SAS is fitted as standard on all Toyota engine and electric powered counterbalance forklifts and with six key features that result in increased safety.

As with SAS, Toyota has seen significant success through the

introduction of their market leading I_Site truck management system which can help to identify areas of improvement to contribute to overall operational safety. Toyota also offers Operator Training, assisting organisations in achieving high levels of safety competence through helping operators to work more efficiently and safety.

Service and preventative maintenance

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) recommend that all companies who operate materials handling equipment ensure that it is regularly maintained, repaired and inspected. They advise that one of the most effective ways to do this and to remain legally compliant is to perform daily equipment checks and have a schedule of planned maintenance established to ensure that the truck is in a safe condition to operate. This can be automated with a system on the truck. But if you don’t have this, you can still provide your operators with a checklist – Toyota has templates available online. A full range of useful safety posters and booklets can be obtained from the Toyota website

Thorough Examination

If you own or operate a forklift truck, you are required by law to make sure it meets safety requirements. A Thorough Examination accredited by the CFTS meets and exceeds your obligations under LOLER ‘98 and PUWER ‘98.

Toyota Material Handling UK is an accredited CFTS (Consolidated

Fork Truck Services) provider of Thorough Examination inspections. Thorough Examination is one of the areas which seem to cause the most confusion amongst organisations. Like a MOT for a car, a Thorough Examination is a legal requirement for trucks with forks. It is the operating sites responsibility to keep lifting equipment

operating within the LOLER ‘98 and PUWER ‘98 legislation guidelines. Under UK legislation all lifting equipment is required to have a periodic Thorough Examination inspection conducted upon it. This interval is determined by the type of equipment and how it is used. Contact Toyota to learn more about they can assist you with Thorough Examinations.
