IN HOUSE HEATS
We are working with a number of companies to offer in house competitions. This has been a most useful prcess to lift forklift saffety awareness in the company and a useful way to change driver attitudes and improve their skill sets. Most companies are offering in house prizes and other benefits. Safety week continues to grow around Australia. If you want to include forklift operations as part of safety week, consider holding a competition.
Contact Louise for further information firstname.lastname@example.org
In house heats are a great way to involve your operators. The heats also help to sharpen operator skills and safe operation of the equipment to the National Standard. Why not ask your managers or HR and safety people to request an in-house kit and get your company involved.
The emphasis of the competition is on safety not speed.
