Finding general labourers the fast labour hire way

Looking for reliable general labourers in Melbourne? Fast Labour Hire supplies the best general labourers across Melbourne and environs.

General labourer jobs are usually done outdoors and in most weather conditions and are often required for the completion of jobs that involve physical or manual labour.

They can take place in a variety of locations, from farms to warehouses, construction sites and infrastructure projects. General labourers contribute to the worksite by ensuring operations are finished smoothly and efficiently.

Though termed ‘general’, these labourers may have specific qualifications such as a forklift licence and extensive prior experience. Fast Labour Hire can supply a range of general labour hire personnel with extra skills.


FAST Labour Hire on Construction Sites

All Fast Labour Hire general labourers come with the mandatory certifications and equipment.


White Card

All Fast Labour Hire general labourers have a White Card (formerly known as a Blue Card) to show that they have completed an OH&S General Construction Induction course and therefore are permitted to work safely on any construction site across Australia. White Cards do not expire but they do become invalid when the labourer has not worked on a construction site for two consecutive years.

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

On construction sites, general labourers mostly do physical work that can be hazardous, so it is compulsory that they wear personal protective equipment. PPE minimises the risks to the health of workers and helps keep them safe while on the job.

Fast Labour Hire liaises with each work site to see what PPE is required and equips our general labourers with PPE that includes high-vis vests, face masks, helmets, steel-capped boots and safety glasses.

The Safe Work Australia website is the best place to find comprehensive information on workplace safety concerns.

How Fast Labour Hire Supplies The best general labourers?

The best way to find the most appropriate general labourers when you need them is to hire them through a labour hire agency. All labour hire employees have already been selected for their skill set, certifications and attitude.

Fast Labour Hire also solve the five most common labour hire problems.

Absent workers

It’s Monday morning and your project manager calls you to say that he can’t continue with today’s tasks until the rubbish is cleared up. However, the general labourer who was supposed to do that is nowhere to be found. Fast Labour Hire values its reputation and will only send you responsible general labourers.

Inexperienced workers

Everyone has a first day on the job, but your project doesn’t need to be the one to give them that first chance. Fast Labour Hire will send you experienced labourers with specialised skills that line up with what you need them to do.

Submitting timesheets

Some workers don’t seem to understand that to get paid, they need to fill in the paperwork. With Fast Labour Hire on board, you won’t even have to handle the pay, let alone the entitlements.

Swapping workers

This can affect team dynamics, the quality of the work done and time delays as assignments and procedures need to be explained to each new person. Hiring through Fast Labour Hire ensures consistent personnel.

Late requests

The nature of the job may change after the initial brief. This can be a problem for general labourers as they may have other commitments or not have the requisite skills. Some labour hire agencies might not have the required workers available or on their books which could become a problem for them – but not for Fast Labour Hire.
