If you are trying to help develop a city, town, or even a building, there is something you need to know!
Construction is a very physically demanding job. You cannot be prone to illness/flu or colds. And you need to know how to pack your own weight… as well as other heavy objects weights as well. There is a lot of heavy lifting involved. There are a lot of pallets that would need to be moved, and a lot of deliveries that may be made to your construction site. Do you really think you are going to lift 60 pound drums? Do you really think you are going to carry a 200 pound crate of parts for your trucks, drills or other types of tools? I don’t care how old you are, and I don’t care if you are a famous “strong man” who can pull a truck with your teeth; it is not safe.
I have one solution for you here today and that would be to get a forklift certificate!!(you can read about how to get one here) What better way to carry heavy items, a distance away without straining yourself? Really, you hop in your little seat and it is just like driving a car… but with two arms out the front that lift things. Honestly, I would much rather bite the bullet, get a certificate and not have to go to countless meetings to the chiropractors or something. It pays for itself.
It really isn’t all that hard, and doesn’t take all that much time at all. And it will be more than worth it, my friend. And, most companies that do construction would have a forklift anyways, it isn’t like you are going to have to go out and buy one for yourself.
Really, if I had a job, and I was young and in a cute little relationship, or even had a wife and kids , I would not want to risk my physical health for the simple fact I was too lazy or uneducated about the alternatives. I am giving you a quick and simple solution, that could even open up a few more doors for you down the road. I would rather be safe, and in no pain that completely unsafe and have an injury that I would lose money for if I were to be bed ridden or have to go to a chiropractor. And to tell you the truth, every little boy will think you are the coolest guy on the block driving this robot that picks things up for you.
When it comes to a job you always want to be safe and efficient. This is the only way I can possibly think of that you can do both. This is a win win situation. Get your certificate today, start training, be safe and faster!!
