While there are many festivals and events across the country, there is one that stands…
One area where heavy equipment operators may see a rise in job vacancies is in the field of demolition. There are a lot of projects planned that will require the demolition of old buildings and the clearing of sites before work can commence. Since heavy equipment is often involved in the clearing of these sites it may open the door for new operators.
There are many different uses for heavy equipment when it comes to demolition. Most involve the use of specialized attachments such as grapples that are attached to excavators. These act like a hand to grab walls and other parts of buildings and, using brute strength, pull them down.
Bulldozers and front end loaders are brought in to clear the site. The bulldozer again uses muscle to push everything into pile. The loader is used to load the debris into dump trucks so it can be carted away from the site.
A demolition site can be a busy and dangerous place to work, however with appropriate safety training there can be few if any serious injuries.
