Toyota Material Handling will be showcasing a range of products which help to reduce manual handling and protect workers at the Safety & Health Expo.

Located on stand S130, Toyota will be displaying a range of equipment including a counterbalance forklift, pallet truck and a towing truck that feature systems to help improve pedestrian awareness of equipment. There will also be a team on hand to provide advice and guidance along with free safety resources for visitors to the stand who use materials handling equipment.

The BT Pro Lifter hand pallet truck (LHM230QP) which has been designed to reduce manual handling effort by up to 67% when moving heavy loads will be available for demonstration on the Toyota stand. This truck will be in a designated demonstration area to highlight the trucks innovative features.

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.

Also on the stand will be the Toyota Traigo 48 electric counterbalance forklift fitted with a Blaxtair anti-collision camera, front and rear blue safety light and red pedestrian proximity lights. All of these features help to improve the visibility of the truck to pedestrians and the visibility of potential obstructions to the trucks operator.

The free safety resources available include forklift safety guides, manual handling guides and a number of best practice posters. Toyota team members will be present to talk to visitors about their materials handling operations and provide them with advice on which trucks may best suit their operation.
