    Safety is freedom from unacceptable risk of physical injury or damage to the health of people due to damage of property or the environment. Safety is lived out through a combination of functional safety, operator training, and proper equipment maintenance.

    Every Yale® lift truck is designed and built for optimal operator and pedestrian safety.  We have a long history of providing lift trucks designed to work safely in many applications. Yale® lift truck trucks can match customer needs using special options, such as the paper application kits; environmental packages, UL types GS, LPS, and EE; and many others.
