A pump operator performs various tasks, depending on the specific job they are assigned to. This may include monitoring various tanks and flowmeters to ensure they are working properly. Pump operators are also required to report any data that may be abnormal. They turn on start pumps and valves in order to start the flow or regulate the flow of any substance such as a gas or liquid. They record data that includes operation times, specific products and quantities that are pumped, and end results.

Pump operators communicate with other workers via radio and telephone in order to confirm when to start and stop flows. They repair and clean various pumps and vessels using special hand tools, and they collect samples for labs that may need to be analyzed. They receive orders on what substances need to be pumped, as well as the specific amount of liquid or powdered material that is required. They also connect pipelines and hoses to the designated pumps before transfer can take place.

Pump operators inspect equipment, structures, and material in order to ensure that they are safe and functional, and they also handle a variety of moving objects during installation and removal procedures.
