Responsibilities of a Forklift Operator
Forklift operators are working within factories and warehouses to move materials from one place to another. Drivers require specialized training, which is usually offered by the workplace. Potential operators should be able to pass both a background check and a drug test.

Daily Inspections
A forklift driver's responsibilities include doing daily functionality and safety checks. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration mandates that all kinds of forklifts be inspected prior to use. The operator must inspect the forklift once more at the end of the shift. Annual safety training is a very essential part of a forklift driver's job description.

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

Weighing Materials
As part of the many tasks, the forklift driver must both weigh and log the weights of the supplies they must move.

Quality Control
Quality control is another essential part of the forklift driver's responsibility. This involves ensuring orders are right and making certain the supplies do not sustain damage during the moving process.

Battery Maintenance and Care
Caring for the forklift battery helps ensure a long life span for the unit. Correct care and maintenance include checking the water level inside the battery approximately every five charge cycles, filling the cell to just above the visible protector, being careful not to overflow the water, and cleaning up any spills. Once a battery is charging, never disrupt the cycle.

PPE: Personal Protective Equipment
Personal Protective Equipment is required when doing work on the forklift battery, such as checks of water levels. Both hand protection and eye protection must be worn, and a fire extinguisher and acid spill kit must be available. Forklift drivers should observe safety rules at all times. The charging area should be kept clear of open flame and ventilated.
