Caterpillar Stand Up Forklifts

Duties of a Forklift Driver
Forklift drivers are working within factories and warehouses to be able to transport supplies from one location to another. Operators need specialized training, that is commonly provided by the workplace. Prospective operators should pass both a background check and a drug test.

Performing Inspections
Performing safety and functionality inspections every day is part of the various tasks of a forklift operator. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration mandates that all types of forklifts be checked before use. The operator must check the forklift again at the end of the shift. Yearly safety training is a very essential part of a forklift driver's job description.

Unloading and Loading
To unload and load materials and to stack things in a timely and efficient manner, forklift operators make use of the controls on the forklift.

Weighing Materials
A forklift operator's tasks consist of weighing the materials they are transporting, and logging the weights.

Quality Control
One more essential part of a forklift operator's task is quality control. This includes making sure that orders are right and making sure the supplies do not sustain damage during the moving process.

Battery Maintenance and Care
In order to make certain that the unit has a long life span, proper forklift battery maintenance is vital. Maintenance and care procedures comprise inspecting the level of water within the 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 battery is charging, never interrupt the cycle.

PPE: Personal Protective Equipment
When doing works on the battery, like inspecting the level of water, Personal Protective Equipment or PPE is essential. Both eye protection and hand protection must be worn, and a fire extinguisher and acid spill kit should be on hand. Forklift operators should always observe safety rules. The charging area should be kept ventilated and clear of open fire.
