Asphalt paver operators should be organized and pay close attention to detail to minimize wasted asphalt, and they must follow strict safety protocols when operating pavers to avoid accidents with coworkers or the general public. They also wear protective gear such as boots, hard hats, and visibility vests. Asphalt paver operators control the asphalt distribution and width, and also assist with material control into the paver. They must understand terminologies such as compaction, patterns, and other preparatory tasks, and also report their progress to a construction supervisor in their area.
These operators work outside in the streets and must be able to carry heavy objects and stand on their feet for long periods of time. They typically work in a construction setting and are familiar with a variety of pavers and asphalt types, and they also help with repairing pot holes and unequal width in streets, operating cranks to move machinery, and providing tow points to start. They may also provide remedies for protruding utility lines to protect the sidewalk and should work well in a team environment with other street repair workers, but also on their own with minimal supervision. A high school diploma is generally required for this position, and prior experience in a relevant capacity is highly beneficial. (Copyright 2017 PayScale.com)
