Redefining Environmental Accountability
Toyota's parent company, Toyota Industries Corporation, has imparted an exceptional corporate principles towards environmental conservancy within Toyota. Toyota's loaded history of environmental protection whilst retaining economic viability can not be matched by other organizations and unquestionably no other materials handling maker can thus far rival Toyota. Environmental responsibility is a key characteristic of corporate decision making at Toyota and they are proud to be the first and only producer to provide UL-listed, EPA- and CARB-certified Compressed Natural Gas powered lift vehicles. Yet one more reason they remain a leader within the industry.
In 2006, Toyota launched the 8-Series line. The 8-Series signifies both Toyota's innovation and leadership in the industry. It features an exclusive emission system that surpasses Federal EPA emission standards, and also meets California's more involved 2010 emission standards. The finished creation is a lift vehicle that creates 70 percent fewer smog forming emissions than the existing Federal standards allow.
Furthermore in 2006, Toyota developed an affiliation with the Arbor Day Foundation, furthering their obligation to the environment. In excess of 57,000 trees have been planted in district parks and national forests damaged by ecological reasons such as fires, as a product of this relationship. 10,500 seedlings have also been spread through Toyota Industrial Equipment's network of sellers to non-profit organizations and neighborhood customers to help sustain communities all over the U.S.
Toyota's lift trucks offer superior durability, visibility, productivity, ergonomics, and all the leading safety technology that has made Toyota an industry leader. The company's System of Active Stability, also referred to as "SAS", helps reduce the chance of accidents and accidental injuries, in addition to increasing productivity levels while minimizing the likelihood of product and equipment breakage.
System Active Stability senses various conditions that might lead to lateral insecurity and potential lateral overturn. When any of those factors are detected, SAS instantly engages the Swing Lock Cylinder to stabilize the rear axle. This alters the lift truck's stability trajectory from triangular in shape to rectangular, providing a major increase in stability which substantially reduces the probability of an accident from a lateral overturn. The Active Mast Function Controller or the Active Control Rear Stabilizer also aids to avoid injuries or accidents while adding durability.
The SAS systems were originally adopted on the 7-Series internal combustion lift trucks which were put on the market in 1999. These systems helped thrust Toyota into the lead for industry safety standards. Now, SAS is used on practically every modern internal combustion models and is standard equipment for the new 8-Series. There are more than 100,000 SAS-equipped lift trucks in operation, exceeding 450 million hours combined. The increased population of SAS-equipped vehicles in the field, along with mandatory operator training, overturn fatalities across all designs have decreased by 13.6% since 1999. Also, there has been an overall 35.5% drop in industry wide collisions, loss of control, falls and tip overs from a lift truck for the same period.
Toyota's pattern of brilliance reaches far beyond its technological achievements. The company maintains an extensive Operator Safety Training course to help clients meet OSHA standard 1910.178. Education packages, video tutorials and an assortment of materials, covering a broad scope of subjects-from personal safety, to OSHA policies, to surface and load conditions, are accessible through the dealer network.
