Let’s get ready to rumble!

Brisbane Markets is once again searching for this site’s safest and most efficient forklift operator.

As in years past, the competition will run over a number of weeks, where all participants will be scored on their safe work practices. The top ten operators will then compete over a timed, practical course for a share in the $5,000 prize money.

Important Dates:


The event is open to all Tenants and Tenant employees who hold a valid Brisbane Markets Forklift Operator Permit (FOP).

Round 2: OBSERVATION PERIOD – 12 September to 12 October 2023 

The results of the observation round are tallied and the top ten finalists then compete over a competency course which tests their skills under safety, time and procedural requirements.

Round 3: GRAND FINAL – TUESDAY, 24 OCTOBER from 8am in the Central Trading Area 

The contestants with the top 10 highest scores from the observation round will be invited to participate in a timed, practical course designed to test their forklift operating skills. Contestants will be assessed by a panel of judges.

The event is hosted by Brisbane Markets Limited (BML) with thanks to our sponsors Brismark, Toyota Material Handling, The Drug Detection Agency and SBP Australia.
