No job can—or should—be completed without proper safety protocols in place. This is particularly true when dealing with heavy machinery, such as forklifts, in the workplace. Learn the key features of a safe forklift, the statistics on the features that most buyers prefer, and the best practices for workplace safety while operating a forklift.
Toyota has developed the world’s first System of Active Stability™ (SAS), derived from automotive technology. Toyota’s SAS and Active Mast Control (AMC) technologies were designed specifically to reduce the likelihood of tipovers. Following the introduction of SAS, transportation injuries involving forklifts in the United States decreased while the SAS field population increased between 1999 and 2010. While mandatory operator training enacted by OSHA certainly plays a large part in these reductions, the safety impact provided by SAS cannot be underestimated – Toyota’s SAS system helps reduce the likelihood of overturn accidents.
