Construction Industry Tradesmen – Need to Retire Earlier

The government seem determined to make construction industry tradesmen work until they drop or better still, until we end up in a wooden box.

Let’s look at one particular trade and try to work out the actual stress that will be put on the human body in the course of their natural working life.

The reality
Now this is a very broad estimate and would not be the same for everyone, but do politicians think all construction workers sit in a nice warm office, always have access to hot food, access to clean toilet facilities and drive a car that is fuelled by tax payer’s money. The reality is totally different on a construction site. Work in very adverse weather conditions for 7 months of the year, no hot food, very bad toilet facilities that quite often don’t even have hot water and a car that thrives on being filled up with overpriced fuel that they can little afford. People often have either of the following 2 philosophies:
Live to work
Get up at 05.30 o’clock, shower, breakfast and merrily go to work. They come home from work at 7 o’clock in the evening with a sense of satisfaction from their achievements and have a sense that it was all worth it.

For this work ethic people view work as a bind …

Electricians & Why They Are Not Like Other Tradesmen

Electricians – The Prima Dona’s of UK Building & Construction Maybe you don’t agree and you think electricians are like other tradesmen but if you worked with them you would soon find out why we call them the Prima Dona’s of Building & Construction.

Electricians Are Superior To Other Tradesmen – Everyone in building & construction know that electricians are more superior to other tradesmen. You might be wondering why so let me fill you in with a few facts:

Electricians that work in building & construction don’t like to get their hands dirty;

Electricians don’t like dust and having to chase cables into walls, they would much rather run the cables along the top of the skirting or straight up the walls in a nice little white plastic box;

Electricians study more than anyone else in building & construction. Because of that they cant’ work long hours on site like other tradesmen. Mostly they like to study birds, horse racing, and football. They can be found studying most days in cafes, pubs and bookies;

Electricians charge far more than other tradesmen – presumably to pay for the extensive studies.

How To Deal With Electricians In Your Home – First off you have to remember that electricians are not like other tradesmen and won’t wake you up too early in the morning. Don’t expect them until at least 10am.

Now you need to remember that if you need any little job done you have to move everything out Subcontractor Rights To Payment of their way or preferably clear out the room if you need a replacement socket or switch.

Electricians don’t like working in rooms with furniture and I think it’s against their religion to move furniture or lift anything too heavy so you need to remember this if you want to get the job done.

Dust sheets can be a problem because electricians are mostly oversized – probably from too much studying – and normally don’t have space in their little white vans for dust sheets. The thing here is not to mention anything and supply and fit your own dust sheets if you value your furniture and furnishings.

Did I mention the asthma? I don’t like mentioning this but rumor has it that almost all electricians are asthmatic. I’m not entirely sure about this so I am going to use the word “allegedly” but it first came to my attention when I noticed that on every job I went on where electricians had been working there was grit and dust everywhere. I soon discovered that electricians never clean up during the job or after the job.

Now don’t jump to the wrong conclusion here, it’s not because they don’t want to clean up, it’s just that they can’t because the dust would be really bad for their chest and presumably …
