Apprenticeship Description

Demolition operative - Level 2 - Apprenticeship Standard

Demolition Operatives carry out the process of demolishing or part-demolishing structures ranging from standard brick and concrete buildings to bridges, industrial plants and power stations. It is a safety-critical role, utilising hand and power tools to carry out demolition work to strict operating procedures to ensure the demolition process is continuously and safely under control.

The Demolition Operative role is the entry-level route into the demolition industry. By its very nature, it is a dangerous role and that is why all Operatives are supervised at all times by Supervisors and/or Chargehands. Typical hazards are numerous and include falling debris, burning steel, cables and hot works so an operative must constantly risk-assess surroundings to ensure safety to self and the wider team. They may be required to work at height, offshore, in confined spaces or in conjunction with other construction operations.

Demolition Operatives provide a support role in demolition projects and would typically be involved in a range of tasks, as part of a team and under supervision, including: using hand and power tools to remove internal parts of buildings such as doors, radiators and ceilings; using a range of heating and cutting equipment to burn through different types of metals; carrying out lifting operations working with several types of lifting equipment ranging from hoists to cranes; being aware of the requirement to protect the environment and recycle materials.

The UK demolition sector is made up of over 650 companies ranging from small regional operations to major contractors operating internationally. Major demolition projects have included the demolition of the Tottenham Hotspur football stadium, Hinkley A Nuclear Power Station, Old Oak Common for HS2 and the US Embassy.
