A-SAFE DRIVE UP AWARD-WINNING SAFETY STANDARDS AT TOYOTA

16 June 2009

Toyota Motor Manufacturing (UK) Ltd (TMUK) has further enhanced its award-winning Health & Safety standards across its 100,000 sq m site in Derby by installing a range of A-Safe plastic barrier systems throughout the site.

Halifax-based company A-Safe and its innovative and flexible plastic barrier systems were the preferred method of TMUK following a company-wide risk assessment of the vehicle and pedestrian interface across its manufacturing plants. The review highlighted the potential to improve segregation between vehicles and pedestrians in the production environment.

Previously, tow-motors vehicles, forklift trucks and pedestrians shared the same aisle-ways with no physical segregation and walkways identified by floor markings only. A-Safe has now installed Pedestrian Segregation barriers throughout TMUK’s Avensis and Auris assembly departments to create dedicated walkways for staff, contractors and visitors

Health and Safety is the number one priority at Toyota UK and the company has received recognition year-on-year from Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) in its annual Occupational Health & Safety Awards.

Vehicle/ pedestrian interaction within the plant is one of the biggest Health & Safety focus area for the car manufacturer. The A-Safe barrier system has supported TMUK in taking a big step towards controlling this issue and reducing Toyota’s risk.

The company had considered traditional steel barriers, but A-Safe was considered to be the best option. It is the most cost-effective, especially in the long-term and is easy to maintain if damaged. A-Safe offer an entirely flexible solution with different sizes and types of barrier available to fit our varied requirements.

A-Safe is also working with Toyota on other areas where the plastic barrier systems can be utilised to maintain its Health and Safety requirements.
