Taylor is not only a leader in the material handling industry, we're also at the forefront of creating new and innovative ways to improve safety. It is our priority to maintain a safe working environment for all lift truck operators, warehouse personnel, and pedestrians alike.
We achieve this through proper training, certification, innovative pedestrian detection devices and of course a regular maintenance schedule to ensure that our lift trucks are functioning optimally and safely.
Our lift trucks are designed and manufactured in accordance with the requirements of the OSHA Safety and Health Standards (29 CFR 1910.178) and the recommendations of the Industrial Truck Standards Development Foundation/American National Standards Institute (ITSDF/ANSI) B56.1.
MAINTENANCE AND REBUILD PRACTICES:
WARNING: Very few "extras" exist on a workplace forklift. Every item, a lift chain, a cotter pin on an axle spindle, a door latch, or a hood lock, is an important "safety" item. Even the smallest damaged or broken item can result in an injury somewhere down the line. - Safety Check, 2nd edition, p. 59
WARNING: Use only genuine Taylor replacement parts. Lesser quality parts may fail, resulting in property damage, personal injury, or death.- Safety Check, 2nd edition, p. 73
WARNING: Use only service replacement parts recommended by the manufacturer.- Safety Check, 2nd edition, p. 73
