Operate and Maintain Machinery
Many production workers use specialized machinery while working on the production line and need to follow best practices for safe operation of these tools. In some cases, this can include performing routine maintenance on the machinery, while in other cases the production worker needs to report performance issues or hazards to their supervisor so that machine failure does not impact productivity.

Enhance Production Efficiency
Throughout the manufacturing process, production workers identify opportunities to enhance efficiency without sacrificing product quality. They may identify areas where production slows down and determine a solution that speeds up the entire line or, may find a more efficient way to perform their specific duties. Production workers collaborate with Supervisors and other team members to introduce these efficiency enhancements and measure their efficacy.

Production workers not only need to follow best practices for safe operation and processes, but they must also ensure that other elements of the production line do not present safety hazards. Production workers also maintain clean workspaces and provide incident reports in case of an accident.
