Construction equipment operators use heavy equipment to move construction materials, earth, and other heavy materials at construction sites and mines. They also operate heavy equipment to clear and grade land in preparation for the construction of roads, buildings, and bridges.
As a construction worker you may also be required to use machines to dig trenches to lay or repair sewer and other pipelines and hoist heavy construction materials. There is also the opportunity to work offshore constructing oil rigs
Before commencing a days work, you may also be required to set up and inspect the equipment, make adjustments, and perform some maintenance and minor repairs. Heavy equipment operators control equipment by moving levers, foot pedals, operating switches, or joysticks all of which require good coordination and of course, training.
Construction equipment can be more complicated to use than it was in the past due to the introduction of new technology such as Global Positioning System (GPS) which is now being used to help with grading and leveling activities.
Does this sound appealing to you. If so you should consider training as a heavy equipment operator through ATS Heavy Equipment Training Schools.
