Forklift Seats are Vital to Comfort, Production, and Safety

Material Handling Best Practices, Tips, Information and More from Toyota

Forklift SeatYou work hard. Riding in your forklift should be smooth and comfortable. That’s why Toyota puts extra effort into installing ergonomically-designed seats in our forklifts. Your comfort comes standard to help you get the job done.

But your safety is the real reason we spend so much time thinking about where you sit. While we make industry-leading forklifts that meet your production demands, we know that people are a company’s most valuable asset. For example, when you invest in Toyota, you get forklift seats with ergonomic side bolsters to help keep operators safe in the seat in the event of a tipover. Additional ergonomic design considerations help reduce operator fatigue, preventing errors and lost productivity.

Remember that seatbelts are the most reliable way to avoid injury in case of an accident. OSHA can fine employers when their operators are found not using forklift seatbelts or when seatbelts are in disrepair, making the maintenance of forklift seats a high priority for successful warehouse managers.

Want an additional way to support operator safety? We offer optional orange seat belts that increase visibility and ensure that restraints are being used properly. When it comes to safety and comfort, our forklifts are second-to-none. Contact your Toyota forklift dealer to learn more about our safety engineering.
