Construction is an overall term which means that art and science of forming objects, systems, or organizations. So like every industry it has its own natural drawbacks.
Worker safety remains an issue that plagues the construction industry. For decades, construction has helped lead all industries in the total number of workers killed. The number of accidents and injuries at work has been steady for years. Holding employees safe and shielding them from hazards and injury should be a top priority for all company owners.
Lack Of Human Resources
During the economic crisis, the construction industry shed more than 2 million workers and failed to bring jobs up to pre-recession levels. Most employees were either unemployed or laid off and sought jobs in other sectors. While the transition began, it became evident that these employees, did not return.
The simple truth is that the construction industry is not recruiting enough resources to satisfy rising demand.
Reluctance To Technology
The construction industry as a whole is historically reluctant to implement emerging technology. Countless reports and polls over the decades have found that company leaders tend to underinvest in tech. Despite their awareness of the many advantages that technology can offer to running a business and handling building ventures they neglect it.
Interestingly, all of these techniques can be used to better solve the many issues facing the building industry.
In the past three decades, the US construction industry has risen from approximately 4 million jobs to a maximum employment of 7.8 million in April 2006, when the downturn began.
