Campaigning for a healthy and productive working environment

At Toyota Material Handling Europe we consider the health and safety of our employees and our customers very important. That’s why we have been a campaign partner of EU OSHA for more than 10 years now.

Safer operations

With our continued partnership with EU OSHA and the new campaign 2020-2022 ‘Healthy Workplaces Lighten the Load’, we want to strive for a working environment that is safe, healthy and productive for employees and customers. Effective management of safety and health risks in the workplace, benefits everyone involved. It is good for workers, good for society as a whole and good for business.

The campaign Lighten the Load aims to raise awareness of work-related Muscoloskeletal Disorders and the need to manage them and to promote a culture of risk prevention. It will only be successful if everyone in the workplace is well informed about the risks and the measures that can be taken to prevent them. Another success factor in preventing accidents and ill health at work is to create a culture of risk prevention, where everyone understands that safety and health is important to the organisation as a whole.

The Healthy Workplaces Good Practice Awards

The Healthy Workplaces Good Practice Awards serve as a platform for sharing information and promoting good practices across Europe with the help from concrete examples of organisations. EU-OSHA would like to invite all our colleagues, European employers, or other business partners and professionals on Operational Health and Safety at the workplace levels to participate. The winners will receive an award at a ceremony in April 2022.
