The role of heavy equipment operator in Construction Work

By Bobby Roy Subscribe to RSS | July 2nd 2012 | Views:

All the heavy equipments in a construction field are useless unless a skilled heavy equipment mechanic handles the job. Heavy equipment is one of the most important tools in a construction field; not anyone can operate them and is extremely important in any type of construction field, whether it be building a small house or building a skyscraper.

So what exactly does a heavy tool operator do? And why is he so important when it comes to building?

Heavy equipment operators have different roles in the field

There are different types of construction equipment and for each equipment a different kind of operator is needed. Some of the most common heavy tool operators include the bulldozer operator who handles heavy tools with enormous front blades that are used to level off the grand and pick up sand and gravel which will all be used for building. Another type of heavy apparatus includes the heavy haul truckers which take care of the diesel trucks situated in mine sites. These truckers help to provide fuel and lubrication to the vehicles even in the middle of an oil sand mine. Back hoe excavators use track equipment to dig holes and even transfers some apparatus from one place to another; they can break stones, as well as coop and dump waste. And lastly would be the buggy operators which is possibly the smallest and the fastest among all equipments.

Caring for the equipment

Aside from properly handling the heavy apparatus assigned to him or her, a heavy equipment operator is also the heavy equipment mechanic. Aside from knowing how to operate these machines, operators should also know what to do in case the car breaks down and should have proper knowledge of how to solve these problems especially in situations where there is very limited help. Heavy tools are big machines which mean that they could be harder to fix and requires a special mechanic to get things done quicker. The operator should know his machine well, since he is the person who uses it and in this case it makes it easier to be fixed.

Being a teacher to others

A heavy gear operator’s work does not end in the construction area; it also extends to the different rooms, institutions, and schools that teach this skill. It is important that they are able to impart and share their knowledge regarding the proper handling and care of heavy apparatus because the best way to learn is not to read instructions from books, but to learn them from the experts themselves. Learning to operate these machines is a continuous process since there are always newer models of heavy gear being introduced to the construction industry.
