Demolition Worker

Demolition workers "deconstruct" existing structures, including single storey buildings, high-rise structures, bridges and large industrial projects such as decommissioned power stations. They strip out the interiors of offices and other buildings, dismantle equipment and safely remove hazardous materials. Demolition workers carefully manage the handling of re-usable materials such as timber, bricks, iron, doors, windows and kitchen cabinets for renovation, repair and sale.

Demolition is a highly skilled job in construction and can be very dangerous if careful planning and high levels of safety precautions are not followed.
