Quality Control
Forklift drivers are in charge of quality control. They should make certain orders are correct and that products do not sustain damage during transportation in the warehouse.

Safety Awareness
Lift truck operators must have great skills in both awareness and attention. Drivers have to be highly concerned with the safety of personnel and pedestrians.
