Measures to Improve Upon Site Operatives Training by Local Building Contractors in Ghana

Olufemi O. Fatonade


This paper presents appropriate measures to improve upon the training of construction site operatives by local building contractors in Ghana. The site operatives are the craftsmen and the labourers. This paper builds upon an earlier study by the author (Fatonade, 2014) on the nature, types and standards of training policy for site operatives by local building contractors. Literature review and methodology of study are all based on the study earlier mentioned with the primary data collection still centered on large-, medium-, and small-scale building contractors in six (6) regions in the southern sector of Ghana.

Some of the findings from this earlier study clearly brought out the fact that training needs for construction site operatives are poorly determined and evaluated even for those contractors having a training policy for employees.

On-the-job instruction is also the commonest mode of training site operatives especially by large-scale contractors. Appropriate strengthening measures were therefore recommended for site operatives training by local building contractors.

Keywords: Site Operatives, Local Building Contractors, Appropriate Training Strengthening Measures.
