The warning device alerts the driver when the seat belt is not fastened, thus promoting safe operation. Additionally, the seat belt is orange, making it easier to check from outside the truck if it is secured.

Traveling or lifting is only permitted when the seat belt is fastened. If the seat belt is unfastened, traveling and lifting will not be permitted.
- Operator Presence Sensing system-
In order to travel or lift, the operator must be seated. This provides a double safety measure by requiring the operator to sit securely and return the directional lever to neutral before traveling.
- In the FH series, the engine can only start when the operator is seated.

This function prevents the sudden starting of the forklift truck, thus supporting the safe operation.

There is an intermittent buzzer and an indicator lamp when the driver leaves the truck without setting the parking brake. Additionally, the buzzer sounds if the operator presses the accelerator pedal while the parking brake is engaged, protecting the brakes from excessive wear.
