Pallet Ranching at the Forklift Rodeo

Just last week, Kahiki Foods put together its company-wide annual safety training. Instead of trotting out the same old workbooks and PowerPoint presentations, the team makes this annual training fun with the Forklift Rodeo! After an opening presentation from President Darcy Zbinovec, the team split off into several groups to perform various activities like getting a t-shirt out of a block of ice to promote teamwork or making a peanut butter and jelly sandwich with one arm to teach about the importance of safety. The day culminates in a test of skill and dexterity with the Forklift Rodeo, a timed obstacle course where drivers must navigate around pallets without dropping a plastic. It was fun day that people here are still talking about. We’re already looking forward to next year!
