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.
Perfect Hire completed yet another Tool training day for our newest team members. This tool training we have implemented into our recruitment and induction has led to a dramatic improvement in the quality of our labour we offer.
Perfect Hire recently completed a regular training session with some of our team members. We hold these Tool and Health & Safety training's every couple of weeks to ensure all our team members know proper operations of each tool they will be using and lean about the importance of using full PPE (Personal Protective Equipment).
Perfect Hire recently completed works at 46 Rose Street, Chippendale for EKOS. Perfect Hire provided 1.7t Yanmar Excavator and Operator to complete demolition and remediation works for this plumbing company which included digging trenches to lay piping, the removal of brick wall and rubble. We also supplied our Isuzu 67-190 Truck to remove all rubble and dirt from site and bring to tip. We completed 17 loads in our Isuzu MR Tipper Truck and the project was completed in four days.
I had the pleasure of interviewing Richard the other day, Richard has worked for Perfect for a little over 3 years and I got to ask him a few questions about what its like to work for Perfect. Can you give me a bit of background on what you were doing before you joined Perfect? “Well before I joined Perfect I don’t know, I was running amuck really and Perfect gave me a job when I was in dire need of one. So I started out just Labouring for them, and now I have finished carpentry in TAFE and I just have to get my Licence.”

We hold these Tool and Health & Safety training's every couple of weeks to ensure all our team members know proper operations of each tool they will be using and lean about the importance of using full PPE (Personal Protective Equipment). We go through the entire range of tools that our team members will be using on sites, from our biggest jackhammers, the Hilti TE3000 AVR right down the smallest in our range the Hilti TE60 ATC AVR. Also we cover use of our grinder range from the Makita 5” Grinder and to the Hilti 9” grinders, teaching our team members the essentials in proper usage. From changing blades to making sure they ware all appropriate PPE and ensure they take the correct stance to maximise their safety.
