The Forklift Rodeo

Today was safety day. We went over going into and rescuing people from confined spaces (tanks in particular). As previously mentioned we also had forklift training and testing. You can see from the picture that we had to run through a macro bin obstacle course carrying a bin from one end to the other and then going back with no load. I successfully completed the course and now am a certified forklift operator for the winery! The final class and testing was on a boom lift. No obstacle course with this, instead we had to move the boom into position and raise it so as to get an object from an elevated position. Then for fun we extended up. The final picture was taken from the top. As you can see it was a gorgeous day - 75 degrees and sunny. Tomorrow it is back to washing barrels.
