Career Videos >> Architecture and Construction >> Construction Laborers video

Construction Laborers are skilled workers who provide much of the physically demanding labor at all kinds of construction projects, from excavation to building to demolition. Depending on the specialty of the company that hires them laborers might clean and prepare sites, dig trenches, mix and place concrete, or even work with hazardous materials or explosives. To do all these things, they assist other craft workers, and operate a wide range of equipment. But all construction laborers can expect to do repetitive, physically demanding work, with noise, fumes, and dangers that require safety gear such as hard-hats, gloves, face masks, ear protectors and eyewear. It’s tough work, but it is available to anyone who’s strong enough, and reliable enough to show up and work steadily and safely.
