The International Forklift Operator of the Year contest takes place once every three years and aims to celebrate the most skilled and safe forklift drivers from around the world.

Explosion protection specialists Pyroban, who share RTITB’s commitment to efficient and safe driving in the workplace, will be a test sponsor for the 2016 competition.

“Pyroban is committed to promoting the importance of safety in the materials handling industry while providing protection for workers operating in or close to potentially explosive environments” says Matthew Shirkie, Group Operations Manager at Pyroban.

“Through this contest, RTITB helps to bring forklift safety to the fore, raising awareness of the different safety considerations that are needed throughout the whole industry, which is why we are proud to support this year’s International Forklift Operator of the Year Competition.”

Pyroban will be raising awareness of the hazards of using forklift trucks in potentially explosive areas through one of the practical driving tests taking place at the competition’s live heats at IMHX (International Materials Handling Exhibition) from 13th – 16th September. After these tough live heats, finalists will display their skills in front of an audience at the Grand Final on 11th November in a bid to win the coveted title of International Forklift Operator of the Year 2016, where once again you will see a Pyroban themed test.

“We’re delighted that Pyroban is a partner for this year’s International Forklift Operator of the Year competition as like RTITB, improving safety is at the core of what they do,” says Laura Nelson, Managing Director at RTITB.
