Duties of a Forklift Driver
The responsibility of a forklift operator is to transport materials from one place to another, usually within factories and warehouses. Drivers require specialized training, which is usually provided by the workplace. Prospective forklift drivers should pass both a drug test and a background check.

Performing Inspections
Performing functionality and safety inspections every day is part of the various responsibilities of a forklift driver. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration mandates that all forklifts be checked before using them. The driver should check the forklift once more after the shift. Annual safety training is truly a very important part of the job description of a forklift driver.

Loading and Unloading
Forklift drivers utilize controls on the forklift to unload and load supplies and to be able to stack products efficiently and in a timely method.

Weighing Materials
A forklift driver's responsibilities comprise weighing the materials they are transporting, and logging the weights.

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

Battery Maintenance and Care
To be able to make certain that the unit has a long life span, correct forklift battery maintenance is vital. Care and maintenance procedures consist of checking the level of water in the forklift battery approximately 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. Once a forklift battery is charging, never interrupt the cycle.

PPE: Personal Protective Equipment
When doing works on the forklift battery, such as checking the level of water, Personal Protective Equipment or PPE is necessary. Both eye protection and hand protection must be worn, and an acid spill kit and a fire extinguisher should be available. Forklift drivers should always observe safety regulations. The charging area should be kept ventilated and clear of open fire.
