We’ll never tell you to go play in traffic. But we will teach you how to work in, near and around it.
On every heavy and highway construction site, construction laborers clear and prepare highway work zones and rights of way; install traffic barricades, cones and markers; and control traffic passing near, in and around work zones. Laborers install sewer, water and storm drainpipes. They check road grades, place asphalt on roadways and place concrete on roads, bridges and dams. They break and remove old structures. Laborers operate a variety of equipment, including jackhammers, pavement breakers, concrete mixers, earth compactors, boring machines, mechanical hoists, lasers, and surveying and measuring equipment.
Even though you’re technically not playing in traffic, some of that equipment is pretty cool.
CESCL (Certified Erosion and Sediment Control Lead) certification is required in the state of Washington by the Washington State Department of Ecology for personnel responsible for construction stormwater inspections and sampling at construction sites.Learn More
Shooting grade is the process of testing the elevation of a construction project in order to level or slope it. Shooting grade properly is critical to every facet of construction including excavation, pipe laying and forming footers and foundations. The importance of shooting grade and leveling or sloping the ground in accordance to the plans cannot be overstated. It affects a project from the ground up.Learn More
Pipe laying is the process by which long sections of pipe are installed and aligned so that they can be welded together. Pipelines may be put in above ground, below ground, and under water. This process is performed by professional Laborers who are specifically trained to lay pipe.
Many industries use pipeline as a means of transporting various materials, such as oil, water, natural gas, and city sewage. Oil companies use vast amounts of pipeline to carry crude oil up from the original well source and into storage containers.Learn More
A blueprint is a reproduction of a technical drawing using a contact print process on light-sensitive sheets. Introduced by Sir John Herschel in 1842, the process allowed rapid, and accurate, production of an unlimited number of copies. Today, a blueprint is used for the reproduction of specification drawings used in the construction industry to build roads & highways, bridges, dams and any type of building or structures.Learn More
Earthwork is one of the major works involved in road construction. This process includes excavation, material removal, filling, compaction, and construction. Moisture content is controlled, and compaction is done according to standard design procedures.Learn More
Road traffic control involves directing vehicular and pedestrian traffic around a construction zone, accident or other road disruption, thus ensuring the safety of emergency response teams, construction workers and the general public. Traffic control is a critical element in the safe and efficient operation of any transportation system. Operational procedures, rules and laws, and devices are some of the components of traffic control systems.Learn More
