Forklift Rodeo promotes skill, safety
from Material Handling & Logistics
To encourage safe and efficient operation of its material handling equipment, Dot Foods holds an annual "Forklift Rodeo Grand Nationals" competition. At this year's event, held June 23, three Dot Foods warehouse employees won a free vacation after earning top scores maneuvering through an obstacle course on a sit-down forklift, a mule (pallet jack) and a narrow-aisle reach truck. As part of the competition, 30 competitors from Dot's eight distribution centers carried a trash can with a basketball balanced on it through a timed obstacle course, with penalties for safety infractions or contact with the course boundaries.
