Private Sector Case Study - Pockar Masonry
Construction is fast paced, busy, noisy, crowded and hazardous. Machinery is complex, materials are new and ever-changing, and safety standards are more and more stringent.
The Workforce is varied with experienced/ inexperienced, old/ young, transient/long term, English speaking/non-English speaking, and literate/ non-literate employees.
Like many construction companies, Pockar Masonry found that changing technology and demographics means changing skill requirements. Training needs to be more frequent, broader, and is often more complex.
“What can an industry, or an individual workplace, do to deal with all of these factors effectively and be productive and competitive in a tight market?” This was the question at the forefront of Pockar Masonry in the mid-2000s.
