Heavy equipment operators build and maintain infrastructures and perform maintenance work in northern regions. They operate bulldozers, graders, loaders, backhoe loaders, hydraulic shovels and off-road dump trucks. They excavate, load trucks, grade large surfaces, prepare sites and perform backfilling operations. It’s a stimulating job for those who enjoy working outdoors and in a team. A job as a northern construction equipment operator requires good vision, excellent manual dexterity and good reflexes.
