What DOES a “Construction Craft Laborer” do?
Laborers working on an underground crew may install water distribution systems, natural gas distribution systems, sewer systems, storm drainage systems, telecommunication cables, or work on tunneling projects.
Laborers working in heavy highway construction may install underground drainage systems, or place concrete or asphalt. Laborers are also used to place barricades and direct traffic.
Laborers working in commercial construction may place concrete or provide on-site preparation. This area of construction also commonly requires laborers to perform tasks that use construction math, scaffold assembly, and blueprint reading.
In this area of construction, a Laborer may remove asbestos, clean up hazardous waste sites, remove lead-based paint, or work on a nuclear power plant decommissioning project. Laborers working in this category are required to be formally trained in the appropriate work area and adhere to strict safety requirements.
