Heavy Equipment Guys

Veteran operators training newbie

Construction industry has more workforce of experienced and old employees who will retire in some years. Hence, there will be need to employ the newbie or beginners. These newcomers are less demanding, are less expensive, and enthusiastic about their work. However, it is often seen that the work is not so easy for them. The different demands and challenges of work especially while moving heavy construction machines and using heavy equipment are stressful for them. Even if they are given an opportunity to operate a machine or heavy equipment, there is a probability of mishap or accidents to occur which can be dangerous. As the new workers lack the necessary skills required for job, they need to be trained.


Effective job training is required for superior productivity. Imparting training to these beginners means companies have to invest money on their training. There is no guarantee for how long these beginners will work with the same organization. Maybe in a year or two they will leave if they get a good opportunity. Thus, the money invested in training is of no use and does not give anything in return. However, taking into account the dangers of the job, if the unskilled person performs the job, then it can cost a life too. It is well known that the best training comes from the veterans- the old and experienced people on the job. A lot of veterans participate as mentor in this type of training.


Veteran operators in construction industry are those who have served this industry from a very long time and are still actively employed. However, they are left with less years of active service. Veterans have plenty of skills and have an understanding of teamwork, discipline and personal accountability. They are passionate and serious about their job. They possess technical skills and training which are directly transferable to the job. Thus, they are highly competent and excellent employees. There is better transfer of knowledge and skills from veterans to beginners. They teach troubleshooting, safety and skills of a job, so that the new operators can manage with ease the demands of a job. In addition, they allow them to be contacted if the need arises.


Although having a newcomer can be refreshing, yet the veterans can face certain challenges while training them. They are not aware of the new hires work ability, and motivation to do a job. Further they have to spend time answering their questions, show them how the work has to be done and settle them in this job. They do not know to what extent the beginner will grasp the knowledge and how long it will take to fully train him. Veteran operator spends his valuable time and knowledge in training, thus requires a positive feedback. It is necessary that the beginner should take interest and put best of the efforts to learn the nuances of job from such experienced mentors. This knowledge will be always helpful in the future and will enable him to perform his work with passion and ease under stressful conditions.
