Transvaal Training: Top 4 skills of an adept construction worker

While construction work may seem gratifying and straightforward on the surface, its mental and physical demands can be somehow overwhelming. You need to handle a wide array of tasks all at once, maintain safe working conditions and operate heavy machinery on hazardous sites. Aside from that, you also have to meet the demands of your clients and ensure the structural integrity of what you build.

This is why being a construction worker requires you to possess a set of skills and qualities to excel in the job. In the construction field, you must have technical knowledge, communication skills and physical endurance, among other things. However, the rewards and lifetime benefits you will get are unparalleled.

Here’s a list of the most essential qualities that a construction worker must have:

Physical strength

No doubt being a construction worker will oblige you to be physically well-built and strong. You need to have a good level of stamina and strength since you will lift, climb, dig and operate tools or equipment. Moreover, your body posture and form should be proper to prevent you from getting minor injuries when working.

Hand-eye coordination and dexterity

Aside from physical strength and stamina, construction workers must have dexterity and hand-eye coordination. Meaning to say, you should master how to move your hands quickly and handle or assemble objects using two hands. You need intense limb coordination in any environment where the pressure to perform accurately is extremely high.

Moreover, since the work will oblige you to read blueprints and documents, you need to have exceptional eyesight. You need to operate the equipment correctly by clicking the right dials and gauges to ensure the safety of the people around you.

Technical knowledge

To be proficient in the industry, you need to have excellent technical knowledge of engineering and construction. You must be familiar with different types of building materials and tools needed for the construction of highways, bridges, buildings and other structures. The more construction services that you can handle, the faster you can build a ladder to success.

Here are the most important construction skills you need to work on:

  • Roofing
  • Framing
  • Masonry
  • Power tools
  • Wallcovering
  • Plumbing
  • HVAC 
  • Demolition
  • Ironwork

Office skills

Since construction work is completely different from a desk job, you might wonder why you need to have office skills. You need to keep in mind that throughout the construction, you and your team will be required to handle budgeting, planning, marketing and recordkeeping to make a project successful. Other office skills include the following:

  • Written communication
  • Information management skills
  • Basic math
  • Customer service skills
  • Scheduling
  • Microsoft office tools such as spreadsheets and word processing
  • Phone etiquette
  • organizational skills
