Duties will include;
- Oversee Machinery - From calibrating equipment to monitoring gauges, production operators are trained to attend to machines so they operate correctly and produce the desired results. When something doesn’t sound, act, or seem right, the production operator investigates, making adjustments and/or reporting issues to managers. Likewise, we will train you to set up cleaning and maintenance schedules to prevent problems by keeping machines in good working order
- Inspect Finished Products - Sometimes it can be difficult to know that a machine has a problem until you look at the items it produces. Production operators act as quality control when they examine output to ensure what’s being made lives up to standard. We can train you to notice a defect, and production operators need to learn to figure out where the error is occurring and correct it so that future products come out right
- Understand Deadlines - We can’t make profits if products and/or procedures are late. Production operators need to be aware of output goals that ensure the business can meet delivery obligations. Delays lead to empty store shelves or dissatisfied customers
- Maintain a Safe Environment - We will train you to work with and operate large, powerful machines. You must abide by workplace and governmental guidelines to reduce the chance of injury to yourself and others. Wearing proper safety equipment and cleaning up your work area are two key safety actions
- Train - As we grow, we hope you will too. Experienced production operators may be assigned to get new starters up to speed. Since many who enter this industry do not have prior training, these mentors need to be able to explain things thoroughly, monitoring progress carefully. Equally, fabricators themselves should possess a willingness to be trained on new equipment or processes to increase and improve their skills. This will increase your value to us as an employer and lead to increased benefits for you
