Toyota Material Handling (TMH) celebrated National Forklift Safety Day 2022 by reinforcing the importance of creating and maintaining a culture of safety for forklift operators. In 2021, the North American material handling industry exceeded 330,000 unit sales, an all-time record.

To promote operator safety training, Toyota Material Handling is offering free site survey audits to recognize and support each operation’s unique needs.

National Forklift Safety Day, sponsored by the Industrial Truck Association, is an annual event that serves as the focal point for forklift manufacturers to educate customers, policymakers, and government officials about the safe use of forklifts and the importance of proper operator training.

Operator training is also available on request from any one of the more than 230 Toyota dealer locations in the U.S. TMH also created a resource library of forklift safety information that can be accessed by visiting
