Job Description for Laborer

Laborers' jobs are very versatile, in that a variety or various tasks can be asked of them throughout a typical day. Most laborers conduct the day-to-day, hands on operations that make a company actually run, and they work in a wide variety of industries from construction to cleaning. Due to the wide range of industries in which laborers can work, their job duties will also vary greatly. For instance, a laborer in a manufacturing-related industry would engage in tasks that are part of the manufacturing process such as operating machinery or working directly with materials. A laborer in construction would likely engage in tasks such as brick laying, drilling, etc.

Laborers generally work under a supervisor, foreman or manager who will directly observe their work and performance. Since laborers work with machines and materials, safety is of the utmost importance so they must be able to follow safety guidelines and directions without any complications. Since the direct responsibilities of laborers are not highly specialized, the requirements to become a laborer are not highly strenuous. Usually a high school diploma or GED is needed, and some amount of previous work in the industry of the company may be wanted. Because the duties of laborers are highly physical, companies usually have specific physical requirements that laborers must meet, such as being able to lift over 50 pounds or having the ability to be physically active for more than 8 hours a day.
