May 2, 2009 – 12th Annual BC Championship Forklift Rally

On Saturday May 2nd, 2009 forklift operators from across British Columbia came together to compete in an event of mobile equipment skill and knowledge. The participants had their skills tested by competing in a precision driving course that required them to navigate though a variety of forklift activities and their forklift & safety knowledge was tested by a written test based on WorkSafeBC regulations.
