Duties of a Forklift Driver
The responsibility of a forklift operator is to move supplies from one place to another, usually in warehouses and factories. Forklift operators require specialized training, which is normally provided by the workplace. Potential drivers must be able to pass both a drug test and a background check.
A forklift operator's responsibilities comprise carrying out daily functionality and safety inspections. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration mandates that all forklifts be checked before use. The driver must inspect the forklift again at the end of the shift. Yearly safety training is truly a very vital part of a forklift driver's job description.
Loading and Unloading
To unload and load supplies and to stack stuff in an efficient and timely manner, forklift operators use the forklift controls.
A forklift operator's duties include weighing the materials they are moving, and logging the weights.
One more important part of a forklift driver's responsibility is quality control. This includes ensuring orders are right and making certain the materials do not sustain damage during the moving process.
Battery Care and Maintenance
In order to make certain that the unit has a long life span, correct forklift battery maintenance is vital. Maintenance and care procedures include inspecting the level of water in the forklift 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 essential when doing work on the forklift battery, such as checks of water levels. Both hand protection and eye protection should be worn, and an acid spill kit and a fire extinguisher must be on hand. Forklift operators should always observe safety rules. The charging place should be kept ventilated and clear of open flame.
