BUILDING: BIBC's Plans To Retain Sector Skills

 



Recent Western Cape Business News

THE Building Industry Bargaining Council Western Cape has announced that it is in the process of implementing a strategy to help retain industry skills.

The building and construction industry is particularly cyclical, being affected by a vast number of both internal and external factors that as a result dictate the demand for labour. 

Unfortunately this can result in a loss of a critical skills base, which the BIBC is understandably wanting to avoid. “We need to ensure that skills are not lost during a downturn period, thereby ensuring that when the demand for skilled labour increases employers are able to draw on the base,” says Arnold Williams, secretary for the Building Industry Bargaining Council (Cape of Good Hope).

The BIBC is in the process of compiling a skill based data-base that will ‘go live’ on its website by early 2012.  The data-base will be available to all compliant employers to ensure that they have access to the skills that are lacking at any point in time and that the industry as a whole can benefit.

With a trade turnover of up to 45% in this industry, the need to maintain this intelligence is critical.

The data-base will be comprehensive focusing on artisans and laborers, including trainees and full artisan trades, in addition to other trades including cleaners that service the building and construction industry.

The BIBC is currently in the possession of records dating back to 1983.  The names of around 500 000 individuals include details such as name, address, employment record (how long the person has been in the industry) and contact details. The one thing that council will not be able to confirm is the competency of the individual.
