Working with Others
For the most part, construction trades helpers and labourers work with a journeyperson or apprentice, or they work independently to accomplish their assigned tasks. They may work as a member of a team on large jobs, such as when working with heavy equipment.
Construction trades helpers and labourers have a recurring requirement to learn. This includes learning about new work materials and new construction procedures, as well as taking part in safety, first aid, apprenticeship or computerized surveying programs. Workers in the unionized construction sector, for which the union is the hiring hall, often take part in union-sponsored training programs.
