Training Workshops in Sri Lankan Steel Construction Industry

Why is Training Needed for Sri Lankan Construction Sector?

The dawn of every day revolutionises the modern global world due to swift technological progression and the identification of new scientific information. This fact applies to the building construction sector of Sri Lanka too as it is of the utmost level of importance that quality, safety, and functionality of all buildings should be elevated to sky-high standards. The clients, including the people who will actually use the constructed and engineered building, expect durability, user-friendliness, elegance, and other quality values and it is the duty of every fabrication, engineering, construction, project management, quantity surveyor, architect and design company of Sri Lanka to fulfil these expectations to the letter.

Subjects in Training for the Sri Lankan Steel Industry

Decades of existence has been the cornerstone for the ever-changing and highly innovative nature of the steel, iron, and building construction industries of the world, including Sri Lanka and other Asian nations. Furthermore, the building fabrication industry has experienced constant advancement over the years and all these reasons result in a diverse array of areas of knowledge and skills. Accordingly, it is necessary for any training workshop or programme associated with the steel or building construction industry to be compatible with the current times and new technology.

The most critical factor in training workshops is quality of the materials and finished project. Quality is what is required for a sustainable and durable development, especially in the extensive industry of building construction. The research articles of Rasooli (2013) stress the importance and need of inspection tests in steel and other material processing plants.

Furthermore, safety is another common theme that is relevant at all levels in the steel construction industry. The impact and influence of building construction projects and building fabrication factories on the environment is immense. Newcomers as well as experienced personnel in the industry should be made aware of these issues and all processes followed should be able to safeguard the environment.

Finally, it should also be mentioned that training on the applicable legal and regulatory framework is essential. Rasooli (2013) states that the rules of the country or province as well as any government law, ordinance or regulation that could apply should be studied and obeyed.
