Bricklayer. Occupational Analyses Series.
Cap, Orest; Cap, Ihor; Semenovych, Viktor
This analysis covers tasks performed by a bricklayer, an occupational title some provinces and territories of Canada have also identified as bricklayer-mason, brick and stone mason, and mason. A guide to analysis discusses development, structure, and validation method; scope of the occupation; trends; and safety. To facilitate understanding the nature of the occupation, work performed is divided into these categories: (1) blocks, the largest divisions in the analysis that reflect distinct operations relevant to the occupation; (2) tasks, the distinct activities that in combination make up the logical and necessary steps the worker is required to perform to complete a specific assignment in a block; and (3) sub-tasks, the smallest divisions into which it is practical to subdivide any work activity and which, in combination, fully describe all duties constituting a task. Other components of a task are trends, related components, tools and equipment, and supporting knowledge and abilities. Each sub-task is accompanied by results of a validation by all provinces/territories. The six blocks, which include 24 tasks, are work-related activities; masonry wall and column system; chimneys, fireplaces, masonry heaters, and refractory materials; construction/layout of masonry arches; restoration; and ornamental masonry. Appendixes include a list of tools and equipment; glossary; blocks and tasks weighting; and task profile chart. (YLB)
