Site Supervisor

Once the building contractor has won the tender, the Site Supervisor will start work at the construction site. He or she will ensure that the project complies with the contractual specifications and that construction follows the construction plan.He or she will also have to ensure that, throughout the project, the building contractor fully complies with the environmental protection and safety regulations in force.To avoid project delays, the Site Supervisor must also monitor work progress and report to the construction team on a regular basis.Discipline is particularly important for a Site Supervisor, who has little margin for error in his or her monitoring task in order to achieve the highest possible project standards. Owing to its site-bound nature, the job is more suitable for those who enjoy working outdoors. Good communication skills are also required to help resolve disputes among workers. Organisation chart
