Toyota Material Handling UK will be displaying a range of equipment aimed at reducing manual handling at the Health and Safety Event 10th – 12th April 2018 at NEC, Birmingham.
Located on stand HS208, Toyota Material Handling will be showcasing a range of hand pallet trucks, powered pallet trucks and towing tractors that reduce manual handling, and will be on hand to provide support and free safety resources to visitors to the stand who use materials handling equipment.
On stand will be the BT Pro Lifter manual hand pallet truck (LHM230QP) and the BT Highlifter hand pallet truck (HHM100). The BT Pro Lifter features unique Pro Start technology that helps to get loads moving using 67% less effort than a standard hand pallet truck. The HHM100 can be used for moving goods quickly and easily and for raising loads to a comfortable working height up to 80cm. Also on stand will be the BT Levio LWE130 lightweight powered pallet truck, designed to move loads safely and efficiently.
Additionally, Toyota will be showcasing the Toyota Tracto TWE080N pedestrian tow tractor with roll cage at the show; designed for easy movement of load carriers, it reduces the need to move roll cages by hand, avoiding injuries such as trapped hands and feet.
Once again, Toyota will be sponsoring the Safer Logistics seminar theatre, in which team members will be discussing health and safety in the workplace and how powered equipment can help organisations to improve safety.
The free safety resources include forklift safety guides, manual handling guides and a number of best practice posters. Toyota team members will be available to talk to visitors about their materials handling operations and provide them with advice on which trucks may best suit their operation.
Jon Buckley, Commercial Director at Toyota said “At Toyota we are focused on providing not only the safest trucks for our customers, but also industry leading advice and support. We are constantly looking at new and innovative solutions to increase safety in materials handling operations and we’re so glad that shows such as The Health and Safety Event provide us with a platform where we can showcase these.”
