Responsibilities of a Forklift Operator
The job of a forklift driver is to be able to move supplies from one location to another, normally within factories and warehouses. Forklift operators require specialized training, which is commonly provided by the workplace. Potential forklift operators should pass both a drug test and a background check.

Daily Inspections
Performing functionality and safety checks every day is part of the many responsibilities of a forklift operator. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration mandates that all kinds of forklifts be inspected before utilizing them. The operator should check the forklift again at the end of the shift. Annual safety training is an essential part of a forklift driver's job description.

Loading and Unloading
To unload and load supplies and to stack things in an efficient and timely manner, forklift operators use the controls on the forklift.

Weighing Materials
As part of the various responsibilities, the forklift driver should both weigh and log the weights of the supplies they should transport.

Quality Control
One more vital part of a forklift driver's role is quality control. This includes making certain that orders are correct and making sure the materials do not sustain damage while moving them.

Battery Maintenance and Care
Caring for the forklift battery helps guarantee a long life span for the unit. Proper care and maintenance consist of inspecting the level of water within the battery about every five charge cycles, filling the cell to just over the visible protector, being careful not to overflow the water, 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 performing work on the battery, like checks of water levels. Both hand protection and eye protection should be worn, and an acid spill kit and a fire extinguisher should be on hand. Forklift drivers must always observe safety rules. The charging place should be kept clear of open fire and ventilated.
