SUPPLY TECHNICIAN I
DEFINITION OF CLASS:
This is entry level Supply Clerk work, which may exist in a large supply
operation or involve operation of a very small storage area with a limited
number of items concerned primarily with receiving, stocking, and issuing
of supplies with overall control of items stocked and stock levels determined
by a supervisor. Contacts are generally limited to employees in immediate
work area and people delivering or picking up items/ supplies, and typically
involve exchanging routine information. An employee in this class offers
little or no direct service or assistance to the public.
An employee in this class is responsible for ensuring that stock items
are placed into inventory and available for use. Work assignments are
limited in nature and usually performed under immediate supervision according
to well-defined oral and written instructions. Work is checked in progress
and/or upon completion to ensure conformance to procedures and instructions.
The complexity of the work is characterized by the existence of related
steps required to perform routine stock-related functions. The scope of
the work is limited to training-level and routine assignments in support
of a supply operation. Employees typically perform their work inside a
warehouse/storage area that is dirty, greasy and dusty and outside on
a loading dock with exposure to a range of weather conditions. Work requires
an employee to keyboard and/or stand and walk for extended periods of
time as well as to reach, climb, crouch, bend and otherwise move about
and position oneself. Employees frequently and independently move items
that weigh up to 20 pounds or more, and occasionally handle items that
weigh about 50 pounds. They use hand trucks, dollies, hoists and other
mechanical devices or leveraging techniques and/or get help from other
workers for movement of heavier items. Some employees in this class independently
move objects weighing 50 to 100 pounds or more by lifting, pushing, shoving,
rolling, leveraging, etc., or using equipment for assistance. Work in
this class involves exposure to hazards associated with slippery surfaces,
high stacks of pallets, toxic substances, corrosives and similar conditions.
