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

Performing Inspections
A forklift driver's responsibilities comprise carrying out daily safety and functionality inspections. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration mandates that all types of forklifts be inspected prior to use. The operator must check the forklift once more after the shift. Yearly safety training is a very vital part of the job description of a forklift driver.

Unloading and Loading
To be able to unload and load materials and to stack products in an efficient and timely manner, forklift drivers make use of the forklift controls.

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

Quality Control
One more vital part of a forklift operator's job is quality control. This involves making sure that orders are correct and making certain the supplies do not sustain damage while transporting them.

Battery Care and Maintenance
In order to make certain that the unit has a long life span, correct forklift battery maintenance is required. Correct care and maintenance comprise checking the water level inside the forklift battery roughly 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. Once a forklift battery is charging, never disrupt the cycle.

PPE: Personal Protective Equipment
When performing works on the forklift battery, like inspecting the water level, Personal Protective Equipment or PPE is essential. Both hand protection and eye protection should be worn, and a fire extinguisher and acid spill kit must be available. Forklift drivers must observe safety regulations at all times. The charging place must be kept ventilated and clear of open flame.
