Hyster-Yale Group announces lift truck sanitization program to help combat the risk of COVID-19 transmission.
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 operation and service calls.
“The HY-Shield Clean program is part of our ongoing effort to address the unprecedented challenges facing our customers and to help keep their operations moving,” says Pat DeSutter, Vice President, Fleet Service and Aftermarket for Hyster-Yale Group. “We’re committed to staying informed and working in close collaboration with our dealer network to uphold best practices for sanitization as we provide customers with essential services.”
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 the 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.
Burns Industrial Equipment is excited to offer the HY-Shield sanitization kit to allow our customers a more convenient way to keep their employees safe and healthy by incorporating equipment sanitization into their daily operations.
