Job Description for Chemical Operator

Chemical operators are responsible for monitoring equipment that uses and/or processes chemicals. Many variables need to be monitored, such as temperature, pressure, and fluid levels. These statistics are recorded by the chemical operator at timely intervals; if any problems occur, the chemical operator must handle the problem immediately to ensure safety and avoid further disruption in the machinery's operation. A chemical operator is also in charge of the safe handling and storage of chemicals, as well as testing and taking samples. The majority of chemical operator positions are found in industrial settings, primarily for companies that manufacture chemicals and the oil and gas industries. Chemical operators' working conditions vary. As most factories operate around the clock, shift work and night work may be required by some employers. The work is both indoors and outdoors, with outdoor work sometimes dominate (especially in the oil and electricity production industries).
