Forklift and Material Handling Technician Forklift Trucks are used in warehousing and manufacturing for loading and unloading materials in places that are otherwise hard to reach. Warehouses and storage facilities maximize square footage by storing supplies vertically, hence the need for forklifts. Forklift technicians are trained and skilled in operating the forklift, in maintaining the truck in good repair, and in health and safety aspects of handling various heavy or hazardous materials. Material Handling The primary responsibility of a forklift operator is to load and unload materials from elevated places and transport them to where they are needed. As a technician, this means you might be called to repair forklifts used for moving stock in a warehouse, fetching building materials on a construction site, or moving supplies in a factory to where they are needed on the production line. There are many other applications of forklifts.
It is important for a forklift technician to understand the materials being transported. You will learn how to handle fragile and hazardous materials safely on a forklift and become aware of weight and capacity so that the truck is not overloaded. A forklift truck has a counterweight, typically attached to the machine in the rear. The counterweight keeps the truck stable when it is carrying a load in front. There are different types and lengths of fork carriages that determine the load it can bear, as well as the maintenance necessary to keep the forks moving smoothly. Most forks use a chain mechanism to allow it to raise and lower. A forklift typically has an open cab, but the driver is always protected by a roof that covers the seated area of the forklift to prevent damage to the driver from falling objects. Forklift Maintenance Forklifts can be battery operated (electric) or fuelled by gasoline or diesel (internal combustion), so depending on which type you are working on, there are different things to check associated with ensuring that the truck has sufficient fuel, oil, etc. Gears can be manual, automatic transmission or hydrostatic, which means the gears are operated by hydraulic power.
Like all vehicles, a forklift truck requires regular maintenance and the forklift technician is responsible for keeping his vehicle in good repair. The controls, instrumentation and battery must all be checked. The vehicle must also be inspected to ensure that it is stable. The tires and wheels should be inspected for loose nuts or wear and tear, and the operator restraints should be inspected for damage or excessive wear. Forklift Safety Because a forklift operates in and around places where people move around, and because of the hazards of spills and breakages, keeping the truck in good repair is an important job. It is also important to ensure that the forklift truck driver has a safe vehicle that he can rely on to keep him safe as he does his job. Forklift Technician Qualifications Qualifications for forklift truck technicians are similar to diesel mechanics. Typically a two year associate’s degree in heavy equipment mechanics from a Community College is required. Other helpful qualifications include hazmat training for dangerous materials handling and familiarity with DOT safety regulations. Experience repairing and troubleshooting other types of heavy equipment is useful and a driving license for commercial trucks is a plus.
Forklift technicians who work outside should be prepared to work in a variety of different conditions, including bad weather, on slippery or muddy surfaces, and around hazards such as people moving around. Job Security Being qualified as a forklift technician is a rewarding job that requires you to be responsible and knowledgeable in forklift operation. It can expose you to a variety of different industries and manufacturing environments and offer you the flexibility to move around different industries. Flexibility and responsibility are great qualities to find in a job and can be significant contributors to job security.
Marine mechanics are responsible for performing repair work on marine engines using hand and power tools along with technical manuals, according to the University of Maine. These individuals also must regularly inspect and test engine equipment to pinpoint problems. The engines they maintain can be small boats’ portable outboard engines or large boats' inboard-outboard engines, which are removed only for major fixes, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
Marine mechanics replace parts such as gears and spark plugs and additionally can address problems involving boat steering mechanisms or propellers. Marine mechanics also purchase necessary supplies, tools and equipment parts. In addition, they might have to create needed engine replacement parts such as bolts or valves using metalworking equipment, according to OccupationalInfo.org. These professionals also draft reports highlighting needed boat repairs.

Diesel Engine Mechanic Diesel engines have powered heavy equipment, large trucks and buses for many years. Today, diesel engines are also becoming common in light vehicles, pickup trucks and passenger cars. A diesel engine mechanic’s job is to become an expert at servicing, repairing and maintaining these specialized engines. Much of the heavy equipment used in the construction, transportation and farming industries, such as bulldozers, cranes and tractors are powered by diesel. There are over 260,000 jobs nationwide for diesel technicians in almost every area of the country. Training and Certification To become certified as a diesel engine mechanic you need to study automotive repair, including automotive electronic systems, and specifically diesel engine maintenance. Training includes safety training on heavy equipment to prevent accidents or injuries. The nationally recognized certification for mechanics is from the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE). You may decide to certify in more than one area such as drive train, electrical systems, diesel engine repair and so on.
If you are going to be working on specialized equipment your employer may occasionally send you to training programs run by equipment manufacturers. Qualifications for Becoming a Diesel Engine Mechanic High School classes in mathematics and English are helpful, and even better is a high school background in physics and automotive repair. Community Colleges offer classes that run from 6 months to 2 years in diesel engine mechanics and automotive repair and can lead to a certificate or an associate’s degree. The best courses offer apprenticeships or hands-on repair opportunities.
It is helpful, and sometimes required, to be in good physical shape because the work can be physically demanding. Generally, you also need to hold a commercial driver’s license as mechanics are required to test drive vehicles from time to time. Any practical automobile repair experience is also helpful.
Once you are in a job, you will progress from small tasks to bigger tasks with a view to becoming a journey-level diesel mechanic usually within three to four years. It is possible to become a journey-level mechanic with three to four years of on-the-job training but it is much better to graduate from a formal certification program. A master technician holds certifications in several areas of automotive repair, has several years on the job experience and re-certifies every five years to remain current in the industry. Responsibilities of a Diesel Engine Mechanic Day to day duties for diesel engine mechanics include regular engine maintenance. Diesel mechanics handle a variety of tasks and need to understand the intricacies of micro-processor controlled fuel injection systems, emissions and pollution standards and regulations, and sensitive timing components.
Mechanics use a variety of tools for performing maintenance, including welders, pneumatic wrenches, and lathes to examine and repair brakes, steering systems, exhaust systems, wheel bearings and other mechanical parts. They use computerized analysis tools to diagnose and repair vehicle electrical systems, perform wheel alignments, fuel injection adjustments and other computer controlled functions. Today’s diesel mechanic is likely to be caught with a computerized diagnostic tool in one hand and a wrench in the other.
Diesel mechanics may work inside a shop or they may find themselves travelling to perform roadside repairs or to various depots to service fleet vehicles. Many repair shops offer 7-day repair capability so mechanics may find themselves on call, working a rotating shift, working weekends and getting weekdays off, or working a flexible schedule that changes weekly. Job Prospects for Diesel Engine Mechanics Because the use of diesel engines is so prevalent in powering heavy equipment there is a large selection of different industries to choose from, everything from the automotive industry to a specialized application like meat packing that uses diesel powered machinery in the everyday course of doing business. Construction, transportation, city and civil engineering such as road and bridge building, all depend on heavy equipment.
An experienced and motivated diesel engine mechanic has plenty of advancement opportunities including shop supervisor, service manager, or an independent repair consultant.
Liquid/Bulk Tanker Technician Technicians or mechanics working with liquid or bulk tankers are trained in heavy equipment and have specialized knowledge of tankers that carry cargo such as gases, petroleum and other potentially hazardous materials. Because they may be exposed to handling these materials tanker technicians also need to be aware of hazmat regulations. Hazmat refers to materials or chemicals that are poisonous or harmful to people, animals and the environment. The Department of Transportation (DOT) has special regulations for the treatment and transport of these materials. Qualifications for Tanker Technicians To qualify as a tanker technician you need to qualify first as a heavy equipment mechanic and then take any special training required to work around the materials you will be exposed to. Often the company that hires you will provide the special materials training. Training as a heavy equipment mechanic or a diesel mechanic usually requires obtaining a two year associate’s degree from a community college.
There are short (three-day) training courses for technicians who are qualified as heavy equipment mechanics and wish to specialize in certain types of tankers, such as petroleum tankers.
Past experience of hazmat or hazmat certification is often desirable. Some materials require special permits or approvals before they can be transported and driving routes are often restricted to reduce the potential for spills in highly populated areas.
You may be required to wear a hazmat suit when working around certain materials or tankers used to transport them. Responsibilities for Tanker Technicians Tanker techs take on a full range of tasks associated with the maintenance and repair or tankers. These include all the normal engine, drive train, brake systems and electronic systems repairs associated with heavy equipment trucks and diesel engines. In addition, tanker techs may be responsible for health and safety issues regarding chemical loading and unloading and the equipment used to do so. They are expected to adhere to workshop procedures, or help develop them, and be familiar with government and DOT regulations for tankers and hazardous materials. Tankers are more complex than other heavy equipment because they are often equipped with cooling systems for the chemicals being transported, and safety devices to contain spills or fires.
Depending on what the company focus is, tanker techs might be responsible just for maintaining tanker trucks or they might also have duties relating to the equipment at the plant where the materials are processed.
Primary maintenance duties include inspecting and troubleshooting engines, wheel assemblies, air induction and liquid cooling systems, transmission and clutch systems, electrical systems, braking system, suspension and steering systems, hoist and winch assemblies and so on. Job Prospects for Tanker Technicians There are many jobs for tanker technicians throughout the country and throughout the world. A heavy equipment mechanic with a good background in hazmat has specialized skills that are in demand wherever chemical processing plants are located.
Regional/District Managers Regional managers are responsible for a team of technicians or a group of service and repair facilities within a given geographic area. Regional or district managers usually combine their background in heavy vehicle equipment with management or supervisory experience in a single plant and go on to run several plants at a higher level. Regional or District Manager Qualifications Typically jobs for regional or district managers require an associate’s degree along with several years’ leadership experience. That might be as a lead technician or management experience in a related field. Managers need to demonstrate skills in dealing with people and teams such as coaching, motivating and mentoring. It is also important to demonstrate an ability to handle conflict.
Managers take responsibility and are able to work under pressure and yet still be able to make sound decisions and solve problems. It is also important to understand risks and risk mitigation strategies. In the heavy duty equipment arena this means having a good understanding of the risks associated with heavy machinery and a background of knowledge in areas such as hydraulics, diesel, mechanical engineering and so on.
Regional or district managers, as well as site managers, are usually responsible for budgeting and managing the finances associated with the service repair shop or maintenance facility. This means in addition to being able to read a schematic you also need to be able to read a financial statement and need good computer skills and working knowledge of basic computer applications such as the MS Office products.
Depending on what industry you are in, a regional or district manager may have a physically demanding position such as walking long distances, or you might have to be qualified in other areas specific to that industry or meet other criteria, such as being able to climb ladders or supervise personnel working in confined spaces or special facilities.
The ability to travel is also required; how far you have to travel will depend on where the company has service facilities located or their geographic environment. Responsibilities of a Regional Manager or District Manager A site manager is responsible for managing a team of technicians. The team will have key objectives and goals, such as safety goals, performance goals and customer satisfaction goals. The site manager keeps the team on track, helps the team set goals, and ensures they meet these goals. An effective site manager keeps metrics that measure performance against the objectives, motivates the technicians to work effectively as a team and deals with specialized customer queries and concerns.
A regional or district manager simply takes these responsibilities to another level by managing a group of site managers. If one site is outperforming the other sites, a regional site manager will find out why and endeavour to bring the other sites up to the same standard. Likewise, if one site is not performing as well as the others, it is the regional manager’s job to find out why and see if he can help that site to measure up against the other sites.
A regional or district manager also ensures that all sites are in compliance with building codes, certification codes, health and safety regulations and so on. He supervises site managers and provides them direction. A regional manager also helps to set the goals and objectives for each of the sites. A good regional manager is constantly working to improve performance metrics and customer satisfaction and essentially to grow business for the company. He also works closely with key personnel in customer organizations in order to maintain a good business relationship with them.

Stating an obvious fact, top talent in any industry is rarely unemployed, which makes accessing that talent a challenge for most companies. Retention studies have consistently shown that a shift towards proactive recruiting approach greatly enhances a company’s ability to acquire a higher quality of talent.
Attempting to fill vacant positions when an employee resigns or is let go is referred to as Reactive Recruiting. Generally speaking, this puts a company in a position where it must quickly FILL the void. To remedy this situation, most companies run ads for a few weeks and make their hire by selecting the best candidate among the applicants.
The problem with this scenario is there can be a big difference between the best of those who applied vs. the best that's available! Think about it for a moment: you just added talent to your team based solely on responses to a narrow search within a small window of exposure. This approach greatly limits a company's potential to acquire the talent needed to build a strong and successful team.
