RTITB has released the Training Recommendations for Workplace Transport guide.
Training guide for workplace transport users
Telford, United Kingdom
RTITB has put together a publication that it hopes will help employers reduce risk and improve safety in their day-to-day operations.
"There's a lot of really good information out there, but it's spread across a number of documents and websites," says operations director Laura Nelson. "What we wanted to do was pull it all together in one place where it could be quickly looked up and understood."
Training Recommendations for Workplace Transport will provide employers, operators and instructors with a one-stop comprehensive guide to the essentials of operator training.
The company is offering the publication at the discounted rate of GBP14 (USD23.60) until 31 May, 2014. This is a 50% saving on the actual publication price. TMHE partners EU-OSHA
Toyota Material Handling Europe (TMHE) has partnered with the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (EU-OSHA) in a new initiative - the Healthy Workplaces Manage Stress campaign.
"As a major employer in Europe, we are very focused on the importance of health in the workplace and the impact it can have both on our people and on our business," says TMHE senior vice president. Peter Damberg. "Previous initiatives of this type, working in partnership with EU-OSHA, have proved extremely beneficial."
The campaign aims to raise awareness of the issue, encourage higher levels of awareness and provide guidance to help employers spot the signs of stress and help tackle the problem.
TMHE's role in the programme is expected to include organising a benchmarking event in the European headquarters in Mjölby, Sweden and local initiatives in its European network, which are related to safety and risk prevention.New forklift series in full swing
