The term construction worker is a generic term and most construction workers are primarily described by the type of work they perform (their trade). Construction workers may also colloquially be referred to as “hard hat workers” or “hard hats”, as they often wear hardhats for safety.

Construction workers often work under a construction foreman.

While most construction workers learn on the job as an informal apprentice to an experienced tradesman, formal apprenticeship programs are common, particularly in developed countries with trade unions.
