In the Forklift Rodeo, drivers were required to use expert forklift operating skills to negotiate a driving course that included various tasks and hazards. Contestants were evaluated on the “safe, efficient, skillful and proper completion of the course using accepted forklift operation standards.”
The top five individual competitors from this competition will advance to the final competition to be held at the 2009 Governorâ€™s Industrial Safety and Health Conference.
The Forklift Rodeo was presented by The Material Handling Panel of the Governorâ€™s Industrial Safety & Health Advisory Board and the Department of Labor & Industries.
