Abstract

Construction workers are people who are directly involved in the construction of a building. Construction workers generally do not have competence in the construction field. This happens because workers in the construction sector generally have a general education background. The purpose of this study is to analyze the basic competencies needed by construction workers. The research sample consisted of 45 construction workers in Medan. The instrument used was in the form of an assessment sheet with rating scale questionnaires. The data analysis was carried out using a descriptive and qualitative method. The results show: 1) The instrument’s suitability test gives the average value of Aiken’s V 0.87; 2) Construction workers need training to improve competence; 3) Basic skills needed by construction workers are: K3 implementation, material testing, equipment use, plastering work, tile/cramping installation, and mold installation. Tools and module are needed to improve the basic competencies of construction workers in the city of Medan.
