Agricultural equipment operators work with heavy farm machinery daily. They will inspect the equipment to ensure it is operating safely and effectively and may even know how to do light repair on the machinery. Safety is key for these workers, so they monitor the equipment while it’s in operation as well and look for hazards in weather or the land that would provide an unsafe work environment. Depending on the farm, they may operate a variety of farm equipment and may also help load products or solutions into their equipment for spreading. These workers would be outdoors a majority of the time and may work long days, especially during busy times of the year.
