The SCLAA is calling for participants to register for the next round of heats in the National Forklift Championships.

• Identify hazards in the area;
• Drive the forklift safely as directed;
• Lift and lower loads in pallet racking;
• Shut down the forklift and do post-operation check;

The champion female and male will each win $1,500 and a trophy. Finalists in April will be presented with a plaque and a certificate of participation.
