Cromer Attends the 2014 Safety Road-e-O

Earlier this month, the Northern California Refuse Recycling Council put on their annual Louie Pellegrini IV Memorial Safety "Road-e-O". It's held at the Alameda County Fairgrounds in Pleasanton, and is in its 5th year running.

This is a friendly competition and educational faire, intended to underscore safety for industry drivers & equipment operators. Kids are welcome to attend & learn about industrial equipment safety, too.logos-roadeo-pellegrini-web-180px

The CRRC invites guest companies to participate in their safety competitions. We sent over a "Cromer Posse", who brought some of our best forklifts (including a "Pink Forklift") and had a lot of fun.

Worker safety is and always will be of critical importance to Cromer Material Handling. That's why we're glad to participate in the Safety Road-e-O, and we hope it continues to set a good reminder of proper worker safety for many years to come.

Photos from the event are at Pellegrini Photography. If you’re sharp-eyed you’ll see our Pink Forklift!
