What is a Production Operator? What do Production Operators do?

Production Operators work in a (non-chemical or non-biochemical) manufacturing environment to transform individual parts, sub-assemblies, and materials into distinct products (i.e. cars, phones, TVs, computers, cans, and machine tools) often on an assembly line. They oversee machinery, handle equipment setup, maintenance, and adjustments, monitor product standards, and enforce safety protocols.

What is a Process Operator? What do Process Operators do?

Process Operators operate and monitor chemical or biochemical manufacturing processes, especially continuous flow ones on an industrial scale to turn raw materials such as milk, oil or natural gas (using heat, cold, pressure, or a chemical agent) into an end product (e.g. butter, beer, milk formula, drugs, vaccines, paint, etc.). These individuals play a crucial role in ensuring the smooth and efficient running of manufacturing or production processes.
