Job Description for Offset Press Operator

Offset press operators have a hands-on position operating heavy machinery in production lines and factories (typically involving paper packaging). The offset press is used to create packaging for products that includes the large-scale production of consumables. To operate an offset press, an individual must be able to use a computer to run the program controlling the machine; the computer is programmed by the operator, who determines the exact specifications required and sends the commands to the machine itself, which begins printing and cutting patterns. In addition to programming the computer, offset press operators are in charge of performing safety checklists, as well as lifting, loading, and inspecting various materials.
