Duties of a Forklift Driver
The job of a forklift operator is to transport materials from one location to another, usually within warehouses and factories. Forklift operators need specialized training, which is commonly provided by the workplace. Potential drivers should be able to pass both a background check and a drug test.

Daily Inspections
A forklift driver's responsibilities include carrying out daily safety and functionality inspections. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration mandates that all kinds of forklifts be checked before utilizing them. The driver must check the forklift once more at the end of the shift. Annual safety training is really a very important part of a forklift driver's job description.

Unloading and Loading
To be able to unload and load materials and to stack stuff in a timely and efficient manner, forklift drivers use the controls on the forklift.

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

Quality Control
Quality control is one more essential part of the forklift driver's role. This involves making sure that orders are right and making certain the materials do not sustain damage while transporting them.

Battery Maintenance and Care
Caring for the forklift battery helps guarantee a long life span for the unit. Proper maintenance and care consist of inspecting the level of water inside the battery around 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. When a forklift battery is charging, never interrupt the cycle.

PPE: Personal Protective Equipment
When performing works on the forklift battery, such as checking the level of water, Personal Protective Equipment or PPE is required. Both hand protection and eye protection should be worn, and an acid spill kit and a fire extinguisher must be available. Forklift operators must observe safety rules at all times. The charging area should be kept ventilated and clear of open flame.
