Duties of a Forklift Driver
The responsibility of a forklift operator is to move supplies from one location to another, normally within warehouses and factories. Drivers require particular training, which is usually offered by the workplace. Potential operators must be able to pass both a drug test and a background check.

Performing Inspections
A forklift operator's duties comprise carrying out daily functionality and safety checks. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration mandates that all types of forklifts be inspected prior to utilizing them. The driver should inspect the forklift once more after the shift. Yearly safety training is truly an essential part of the job description of a forklift operator.

Unloading and Loading
Forklift drivers utilize forklift controls to be able to unload and load materials and to be able to stack things efficiently and in a timely method.

Weighing Materials
A forklift operator's duties consist of weighing the supplies they are transporting, and logging the weights.

Quality Control
One more essential part of a forklift operator's task is quality control. This involves ensuring orders are right and making sure the supplies do not sustain damage while transporting them.

Battery Maintenance and Care
Caring for the forklift battery helps ensure a long life span for the unit. Correct care and maintenance consist of checking the water level in the battery around 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. When a forklift battery is charging, never disrupt the cycle.

PPE: Personal Protective Equipment
Personal Protective Equipment is essential when doing work on the battery, like checks of water levels. Both eye protection and hand protection must be worn, and an acid spill kit and a fire extinguisher must be on hand. Forklift operators must always observe safety rules. The charging area should be kept clear of open flame and ventilated.
