Some working conditions include exposure to extreme heat or cold temperatures, loud noise levels, dust and dirt particles in the air and vibrations from equipment use.
Machine operators typically need at least a high school diploma or equivalent degree because they must be able to read blueprints and follow safety procedures outlined by OSHA (Occupational Safety Health Administration) regulations.
