Lather (Interior Systems Mechanic). Occupational Analyses Series.
Chapman, Mike; Chapman, Carol; MacLean, Margaret
This analysis covers tasks performed by a lather, an occupational title some provinces and territories of Canada have also identified as drywall and acoustical mechanic; interior systems installer; and interior systems mechanic. 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 the following categories: (1) blocks, the largest division in the analysis that reflects a distinct operation 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 that 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 4 blocks, which include 13 tasks, are occupation skills; framing; interior systems; and exterior systems. Appendixes include a list of tools and equipment; glossary; blocks and tasks weighting; and task profile chart. (YLB)
