Construction equipment operators use machinery to move construction materials, earth, and other heavy materials at construction sites and mines. Heavy Equipment Operators operate equipment that clears and grades land to prepare it for construction of roads, buildings, and bridges, as well as airport runways, power generation facilities, dams, levees, and other structures. They use machines to dig trenches, lay or repair sewer, utilities, and hoist heavy construction materials. Construction equipment operators also operate machinery that spreads asphalt and concrete on roads and other structures. These workers also help set up and inspect the equipment, make adjustments, and perform some maintenance and minor repairs. Construction equipment is more technologically advanced than it was in the past. For example, global positioning system (GPS) technology is now being used to help with grading and leveling activities. Students learn the “One Call System” as well as transit and laser setup and use.
