Not all infrastructure construction projects are the same. Here is a look at how there…
Once a bastion of male domination, the construction site is becoming an equal opportunity employer as more and more women join the workplace.
Women have been driving trucks for a long time now so it is only natural they would set their sites on other areas within the heavy equipment scene. Today’s machinery is nothing like those of yesteryear. You no longer need brute stength to operate many of these machines. They have incorporated features such as power steering, power assisted hydraulics and a much friendlier cab environment.
Heavy equipment can be operated by anyone, young, old, male or female. Provided you receive the right training, there are no longer any boundaries as to who can operate any of the heavy equipment found on construction site. In fact, it’s not just heavy equipment. You will find women working in a variety of places, from the trades such as carpentry through to metal work and scaffolding, there are no longer any limitations.
Training is the key and training institutions throw their doors open to all who want a career in heavy equipment. ATS Heavy Equipment Training Schools places no limitations on the individuals wanting a career in heavy equipment. If the desire is there, the opportunity is as well.
