Construction workers who are not familiar with construction jargon can be confusing when it comes to their new job.
It is no secret that the construction industry is growing fast in Australia and is now one of the fastest-growing industries in the world.
So, what is construction?
Construction is the building of structures, whether they be homes, schools, hotels or hospitals, using a variety of materials.
Construction includes everything from building foundations, roofs, ceilings, floors and other building elements.
A construction project can be as simple as laying a slab of concrete, installing a floor and installing a roof.
The more complex the project, the more involved the construction worker has to be.
Workers in the construction sector also get paid a salary and can use the money to buy insurance and other personal expenses.
There are also some occupations in the industry that are usually considered “non-essential” such as roofers, plumbers, electrical workers, metal workers and electricians.
