Toyota Material Handling has been producing forklifts for over 60 years. As leaders in the industry, we are passionate about ensuring our solutions tick every box for our customers.
One of those boxes is related to safety and with our forklifts, safety comes as standard. This is down to several reasons, which we run through in this article.
- We always meet industry standards.
- Innovation is at the heart of what we do.

- I_Site: Fleet management tool.
1. We always meet industry standards.
We are committed to building the highest-quality forklifts using precision production processes and a skilled and dedicated workforce.
This ensures we exceed the highest industry standards in line with UK regulations, including the Approved Code of Practice.
On top of producing the safest forklifts, we are also accredited by the CFTS to carry out thorough examinations of trucks to ensure you always meet your legal responsibilities of LOLER and PUWER. Find out how we do this here.
2. Innovation is at the heart of what we do.
We produced our first forklift truck in 1956 and since then, Toyota has been a pioneer in the material handling industry.
As technology has advanced, so have our solutions. This is because we carry out our work in line with the Toyota Lean Manufacturing and Production System.
One of the critical elements of this system is Kaizen, which involves optimising our forklifts through continuous improvement.
This can be seen in the number of safety features we have built into our forklifts over the years. Read on to find out more about what these include.
3. Our range of forklift safety features.
Toyota’s continuous improvement culture has led us to develop some of the leading forklift safety features in the industry.
Our forward-thinking engineering is why we produce some of the safest forklifts on the market. Every time a new forklift solution is built, safety is always one of the factors we put first.
Some of our forklifts' most effective safety features include:
