Safety is paramount. A clean site is a productive site. Be fair but firm. Get as much education as possible, go to night school is need be. Pay close attention to what is happening and ask a lot of questions. Master something "NEW" everyday. Get Certified, preferably a Gold Seal through the Canadian Construction Association. Plan ahead and go into detail. Review drawings, specifications and contract scope of work well in advance. Check drawings and especially dimensions. It is better to change a line on the drawing than to cut and core concrete. Be mindful of costs and productivity. Try to provide 3 solutions to every challenge.
