Redefining Environmental Accountability
Toyota's parent company, Toyota Industries Corporation, has imparted an outstanding company values towards environmental management within Toyota. Toyota's rich history of environmental protection whilst retaining economic viability cannot be matched by other organizations and certainly no other materials handling maker can so far rival Toyota. Environmental accountability is a fundamental aspect of corporate decision making at Toyota and they are proud to be the first and only manufacturer to offer UL-listed, EPA- and CARB-certified Compressed Natural Gas powered lift trucks. Yet an added reason they remain a leader within the industry.
In 2006, Toyota released 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 principles, and also meets California's more involved 2010 emission standards. The end creation is a lift truck that produces 70% less smog forming emissions than the present Federal standards allow.
Also starting in 2006, collectively with the Arbor Day Foundation, Toyota added to its dedication to the environment. To this day more than 58,000 trees have been embedded in the ground throughout state forests and community parks that were damaged by fires and other ecological causes. 10,500 seedlings have also been distributed through Toyota Industrial Equipment's network of sellers to non-profit organizations and local consumers to help sustain communities all over the U.S.
Toyota's lift vehicles provide superior output, visibility, ergonomics and durability, and most notably, the industry's leading safety technology. The company's System of Active Stability, also referred to as "SAS", helps reduce the possibility of incidents and injuries, and increasing productivity levels while minimizing the potential for merchandise and equipment damage.
System Active Stability senses several aspects that may lead to lateral instability and potential lateral overturn. When any of those conditions are detected, SAS immediately engages the Swing Lock Cylinder to steady the rear axle. This transitions the lift truck's stability trajectory from triangular in shape to rectangular, offering 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 prevent injuries or accidents while adding durability.
The SAS systems were initially utilized on the 7-Series internal combustion lift vehicles which were put on the market in 1999. These systems helped propel Toyota into the lead for industry safety standards. Now, SAS is adopted 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 trucks in the field, along with obligatory worker training, overturn fatalities across all models have decreased by 13.6% since 1999. Furthermore, there have been an overall 35.5% reduction in industry wide collisions, loss of control, falls and tip overs from a lift truck for the same period.
Toyota's uncompromising principles reach far beyond the technology itself. The company believes in offering general Operator Safety Training services to help clients meet and exceed OSHA standard 1910.178. Instruction courses, video tutorials and assorted resources, covering a broad scope of matters-from individual safety, to OSHA rules, to surface and cargo conditions, are accessible through the dealer network.
Toyota has maintained a continuous presence in the United States ever since its first sale. In 2009, Toyota Industrial Equipment Manufacturing, produced its 350,000th lift truck. This fact is demonstrated by the statistic that 99% of Toyota lift trucks bought in America at the moment are manufactured in the United States.
