Toyota LIft trucks Ranked Safest in U.S. Material Handling Survey

For the second consecutive year Toyota Material Handling, U.S.A., Inc. took top billing as the lift truck customers consider safest in a recent study conducted by Peerless Research Group on Lift Truck Safety.

Toyota also ranked highest in an evaluation of what specific brand prospective lift truck purchasers consider to:

·Have the fewest safety-related incidents; and

·Be the most affordable to maintain in terms of safety

“At Toyota, our top priorities are the safety of our customers and the quality of products we deliver,” said Jeff Rufener, president of Toyota Material Handling, U.S.A., Inc. “We are honoured to be recognized by customers. This important study also confirms the value that customers place on safety when determining what brand of forklifts to purchase.”

The study was conducted with qualified readers of Modern Materials Handling magazine to better understand and track which lift truck safety issues are most important and which companies are regarded as manufacturers of the safest lift trucks. Those surveyed were selected from subscribers who are involved in the use, evaluation and purchase of lift trucks and lift truck accessories
