Description

Learn to handle materials and equipment, and perform demolition, excavation, and compaction activities. Unlike most construction tradesmen, craft workers have the flexibility to work on a variety of projects. They are responsible for site security and have the option to specialize in operating off-road vehicles, drilling, scaling diving and performing emergency rescue.

Construction craft workers are jack of all trades. They work on all types of construction sites including but not limited to residential, commercial, roadways, bridges and high rises. Craft workers also develop the knowledge and the knowhow to do a wide variety of roles in these sites. Their responsibilities might include simple things such as preparation of the sites or clean up of sites, and grow into much more complex things such as working on concrete, masonry, steel wood etc. This, unlike most construction tradesmen, provides them with the flexibility to work on a variety of projects and positions.
Construction craft workers can also expand their professional scope by completing additional training programs. Some of the roles they effectively fulfill after these programs are drilling, blasting, tunnelling, diving and performing emergency rescue. As one can see, this makes them invaluable in the construction industry.
