Toyota Supports National Forklift Safety Day | Industry News

To increase awareness of the importance of forklift safety, Toyota Material Handling, U.S.A., Inc. (TMHU),is supporting the inaugural National Forklift Safety Day. Sponsored by the Industrial Truck Association (ITA), National Forklift Safety Day serves as a focal point for manufacturers to highlight the safe use of forklifts and the importance of operator training. It also provides an opportunity for the industry to educate customers, policymakers, and the administration on forklift operating safety practices. Toyota executives will participate in discussions taking place June 10, 2014, at the Hyatt Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C.

“At Toyota, we are committed to improving forklift safety by developing innovative lift truck safety features like Toyota’s System of Active StabilityM, which reduces the likelihood of forklift turnovers,” said Jeff Rufener, president of TMHU. “We are proud to participate in National Forklift Safety Day and applaud the work of the ITA to raise awareness of the importance of forklift safety, maintenance and operator training.”

National Forklift Safety Day will continue on the second Tuesday of June each year. This timing coincides with the National Safety Council’s designation of June as National Safety Month.
