Competitions / rodeos

2nd biennial Columbia Forklift Challenge

This event is part of the Oregon Governor’s Occupational Safety & Health Conference (GOSH).

The inaugural Columbia Forklift Challenge debuted at the Oregon GOSH conference in Portland on March 8, 2011. The event showcases the operating skill and safety awareness of drivers who participate.

Operators negotiated tight turns, maneuvered through a slalom run, stacked pallets and containers in precise locations, and finished with the task of rolling a bowling ball off a pallet toward pins approximately 20 feet away.

Cash prizes ranged from $200 to $500 and were given to both teams and individuals. All drivers competing were required to have employer certified training and attended an orientation prior to the event. Boeing, National Frozen Foods, Cascade Steel, Fred Meyer Distribution, and Boise Packaging and Newsprint participated in the 2011 competition.
