We have just finished another successful Safety & Equipment training day here at Perfect Labour Hire. We go through each and every single piece of equipment our new team members will encounter out on sites. Unlike any other Labour Hire company in the market we care about the safety and quality of our team members that work for our clients all across the Sydney Metro Area.
Labour Hire is currently at an all time high in Sydney with a massive amount of construction, infrastructure, civil and fit-out projects in full swing across the city the demand for Labour Hire in Sydney has never been greater. Some of the key factors for this is the rise of unemployment coupled with the lack of youth that are entering the Construction Industry. According to the 2017 IBIS World Report the Labour Hire industry currently stands at $20bn with an average annual growth of 2.2%.
From years of experience in the Labour Hire industry we here at Perfect Hire have identified some major safety and training issues that nobody seems to be addressing. The main problem with the industry is there is little or no regulation and heaps of rogue labour hire companies are allowed to just do what ever they like.
Perfect Hire are always looking into new technologies to improve our services and streamline our customer support so we can help all our clients faster and better.One new application which we came across is PlanGrid, this connect's the field, trailer, and office with up-to-date blueprints, markups, punch lists, RFIs, and more.
With the amazing advances in technology in recent years the construction industry is starting to embrace a more technology driven era. From unmanned trucks to machine learning computers to calculate estimations we are seeing more and more technology being used in the Construction Industry. One such technology that has seen massive growth in both the Construction and Mining Industries in Australia is the use of drones. A drone is a remote controlled aircraft without a human pilot aboard. UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) are a component of an unmanned aircraft system; which include a UAV, a ground-based controller, and a system of communications between the two.
What is the difference between general labourer and a skilled labourer? We seem to be getting this question from quite a lot of clients recently. Well we would like to clear things up as there are some bad companies out there that offer you skilled labourers who cannot even tie their shoe laces. A general labourer is an un-skilled labourer that generally carries out basic labour tasks like rubbish removal, site cleaning, loading and un-loading. Most general labourers have little or no experience in using some of the tools used in the construction industry today.
There is a massive problem with the Labour Hire industry at the moment. With the massive growth of the construction industry there has been also a growth in the demand for Labour Hire as projects get delayed or deadlines need to be met, so the need for extra Labour is every increasing.
