It is important that Supervisors and Project Managers are made accountable for their worker’s productivity. Labour productivity should be monitored on each project on all sections.

I liked that you pointed out that a good manager of a construction site will make sure that there is enough light on the site. That does seem like a really important thing to do if the workers are on the site at night. After all, you don't want anyone to get hurt because of poor lighting.

Hi Penelope, unfortunately some contractors don't provide sufficient lighting which may be required when working indoors and the permanent lights aren't yet connected and illuminated. Working in poor light means that workers can't see what they are doing, this often results in poor quality and management not seeing the poor quality. When the permanent lights are connected and the rooms are properly lit, then the defects become apparent. This takes time and costs money to rectify.
