Lift truck sanitization program helps combat COVID-19 transmission

Hyster-Yale self-sanitary kit

To address concerns about the introduction and spread of COVID-19 at customer workplaces, Hyster-Yale Group is introducing a virus safety initiative for lift trucks.  

Developed in partnership with its nationwide dealer network for the company's Yale and Hyster lift truck brands, HY-Shield Clean is a lift truck sanitization program designed to help keep facility personnel safe during all aspects of forklift activity, including daily operation and service calls.

HY-Shield Clean leverages corporate and dealer expertise with best practices from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to address lift truck service and operation. The initiative also identified the most common touchpoints for each lift truck product class, enabling tailored recommendations according to equipment type.

The program guides Hyster and Yale dealers through a range of offerings for effective sanitization before, during and after each service call or shift. These offerings cover everything from standalone deep cleaning to equipping technicians and lift truck operators with sanitization supplies and personal protective equipment, such as masks and gloves - all sourced to support compliance with CDC guidelines.
