Toyota campaigns to promote safe working environments

Published: June 29, 2012 by Nikki Matthews

For the next two years Toyota Material Handling Europe and EU-OSHA will work together as official partners for the new EU-OSHA Healthy Workplaces campaign focusing on developing research, training and sharing expertise to promote safe working environments.

Toyota Material Handling is strongly committed to promoting safety and has a long tradition with safety programmes.

On a European level Toyota regularly provides tailor-made training to its 2,500 factory workers, in factories that are OHSAS 18001 certified. Further training programmes are tailored to suit the needs of more than 4,500 service technicians and other stakeholders.

In the UK, Toyota Material Handling is focused on a year-long campaign promoting safety called ‘Taking Care with Toyota’ which includes both internal and external activities. Internally, the Leicester Depot is the first to install a “Safety Dojo”, an educational area where employees are trained in risk assessment, safe and correct use of protective equipment and handling of chemical products, among others.
