Galleries: Fork Lift Truck Olympics 2012
The Forklift Gymnastics competition 2012 is now closed.
And the winner is...
The winning image in the FLTA’s Forklift Gymnastics captured a Hyster forklift getting ready for a winter in Alberta, Canada with a snow removal attachment. Congratulations Al Sloan of the Alberta Forklift Safety Council Ltd., for submitting the winning image!
  • Fork Lift Truck Association Awards for Excellence 2012 Winners
The Fork Lift Truck Association Awards for Excellence has a lot in common with the Olympics, so it’s no surprise that the UK trade body is celebrating 2012 with a specially-themed Awards... including a one-off "Fork Lift Truck Olympics" - and you can get involved!

We need your entries for the "Gymnastics" event: real photos of forklift trucks in weird and wonderful situations, or carrying unusual loads. (Remember though, the FLTA works to promote safety, so pictures of unsafe practices won't be considered).
