Industry Leader in Safety
Toyota's lift vehicles offer improved stability, visibility, output, ergonomics, and all the foremost safety equipment that has made Toyota an industry leader. The company’s System of Active Stability, also called “SAS”, helps limit the possibility of accidents and accidental injuries, and increasing productivity levels while minimizing the potential for merchandise and equipment breakage.
System Active Stability senses various elements that could lead to lateral instability and likely lateral overturn. When one of those factors are detected, SAS instantaneously engages the Swing Lock Cylinder to stabilize the rear axle. This alters the lift truck’s stability trajectory from triangular in shape to rectangular, offering a major increase in stability which substantially reduces the likelihood of a mishap 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 initially adopted on the 7-Series internal combustion lift vehicles which were put on the market in 1999. These systems helped push Toyota into the lead for industry safety standards. Now, SAS is adopted on virtually every new internal combustion models and is standard equipment for the new 8-Series. There are more than 100,000 SAS-equipped lift trucks in action, exceeding 450 million hours combined. The increased population of SAS-equipped vehicles in the field, along with mandatory operator education, overturn fatalities across all models have decreased by 13.6% since 1999. Additionally, there has been an overall 35.5% fall in industry wide collisions, loss of control, falls and tip overs from a lift truck for the same period.
Toyota's standard of excellence reaches far beyond its technological achievements. The company maintains a widespread Operator Safety Training course to help clients meet OSHA standard 1910.178. Instruction programs, video tutorials and a variety of resources, covering a broad scope of topics—from individual safety, to OSHA rules, to surface and load situations, are offered through the supplier network.
