A lumberyard worker sorts and stacks lumber based on size and type so that the customer can easily find the lumber he needs. Because of the physical nature of the job, the lumberyard worker must be physically fit and able to lift heavy loads. He also oversees the maintenance and cleanliness of the lumberyard, ensuring that stacks of wood stay neat and that the yard has a clean appearance. As shipments of new lumber come into the yard, the worker unloads the trucks and places the lumber in the correct spots in the yard or stacks it up out of the way to sort through and put away later. A lumberyard worker runs the saws, forklifts and other equipment and must adhere to all safety rules and regulations.
