Duties of a Forklift Operator
The task of a forklift operator is to transport materials from one place to another, normally in warehouses and factories. Operators need particular training, that is usually offered by the workplace. Prospective forklift operators should pass both a background check and a drug test.

Daily Inspections
Carrying out safety and functionality inspections on a daily basis is part of the various responsibilities of a forklift operator. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration mandates that all forklifts be checked before use. The driver should inspect the forklift again after the shift. Annual safety training is a very important part of a forklift operator's job description.

Loading and Unloading
To unload and load materials and to stack products in an efficient and timely manner, forklift drivers use the controls on the forklift.

Weighing Materials
A forklift driver's tasks consist of weighing the supplies they are moving, and logging the weights.

Quality Control
Quality control is one more essential part of the forklift operator's job. This includes ensuring orders are right and making certain the materials do not sustain damage while transporting them.

Battery Care and Maintenance
Caring for the forklift battery helps ensure a long life span for the unit. Proper care and maintenance consist of inspecting the water level inside the forklift battery about every five charge cycles, being careful not to overflow the water while filling the cell to just over the visible protector, and cleaning up any spills. Once a battery is charging, never interrupt the cycle.

PPE: Personal Protective Equipment
When performing works on the battery, like inspecting the water level, Personal Protective Equipment or PPE is required. Both eye protection and hand protection must be worn, and an acid spill kit and a fire extinguisher should be on hand. Forklift operators should observe safety rules at all times. The charging area should be kept clear of open flame and ventilated.
