Red Seal Exam

Construction Craft Workers work on constructions sites such as residential, commercial and industrial buildings.  They unload machinery and building materials and build scaffolding and barricades. Typical duties may include building forms for concrete, pouring, mixing and spreading concrete, cleaning, sweeping, removing trash and debris, and assisting other craft workers including welders, carpenters, fabricators, bricklayers and carpenters. They operate of small tools, power tools, assist with machine maintenance, and operate equipment such as jackhammers and torches.

This person may also be responsible for a number of other specific tasks, including carpentry, demolition, drywall, cement, finishing, and roofing. Once the job is completed, they disassemble all the equipment used and clean up the site, including removing debris. They also sometimes help demolish buildings, which can include tearing down structures and salvaging materials to recycle. Construction Craft Workers do not just work at building construction, they also work on roads, bridges, pipelines, and mining sites. They may work as flagmen/women, concrete mixers and excavators.

Most of the time, a construction worker is not required to receive formal education, although some attend trade schools and classes to receive certification for various skills. But with added experience and training, they may specialize in different areas of construction such as operation of off road vehicles, drilling and blasting, diving and tunnelling.

This work is almost always physical in nature and must be able to work on their feet for their entire shift. Work is typically done during the day and may involve difficult conditions such as extreme heat and cold.

 

 

                                      Industry Changes

Employment prospects for Construction craft workers vary with the seasons and with economic conditions. Highly experienced Construction craft workers may specialize in specialty type work, advance to supervisory positions or become contract estimators. The work is most rewarding for those who take pride in seeing the results of their work, and enjoy physical exercise and working with their hands.

 

Over the next ten years, the employment outlook is considered to be excellent. The lack of trained and qualified Construction craft workers and the expected increased retirement rate in this trade over the next decade highlight the opportunities within the industry for good potential jobs.

 

                                                          Safety

Safe working practices and accident prevention are the primary importance to the health and safety of all person(s) at any or all work place environments. All person(s) including employee, employer and government, share this responsibility in order to keep everyone free of any dangers or accidents that may cause an individual(s) serious bodily harm or death.

The Occupational Health and Safety Acts and Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS) Regulations, should be consistently reviewed and enforced in every work place environment. Educating and understanding these regulations is everyone’s responsibility in order to keep a safe work place environment.

Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) has contributed to a safer work place environment. Health and safety has become a high priority in the workplace due to increased awareness of dangers and the identifications of hazardous materials.
