ICBT | HND IN QS | RESEARCH PROPOSAL

INTRODUCTION
Construction is the world's largest and most challenging industry. Human resource
today has a strategic role for productivity increase of any organization, and this
makes it superior in the industrial competition
Productivity is the one of the most important factor that affect overall performance of
any small or medium or large construction industry
There are number of factors that directly affects the productivity of labour, thus it is
important for any organization to study and identify those factors and take an
appropriate action for improving the labour productivity

WHAT IS PRODUCTIVITY?
Productivity is the ratio of output to all or some of the
resources used to produce that output. Output can be
homogenous or heterogeneous. Resources comprise: labour,
capital, energy, raw materials, etc.

VARIOUS FACTORS A F F E C T I N G LABOUR


PRODUCTIVITY
According to Mechanical Contractors Association
they highlights 16 factors affecting labor productivity

of America (MCAA)

1. Overtime
Scheduling of extended work days or weeks exceeding a standard eight-hour work day or 40- hour
work week lowers work output and efficiency through physical fatigue and poor mental attitude.

2. Crew Size Inefficiency


This is when the optimal crew size is altered by adding or deleting crew members. When workers
are added or deleted from a crew, it breaks up the original team effort and rhythm of the crew and
results in loss of productivity.

VARIOUS FACTORS A F F E C T I N G LABOUR


PRODUCTIVITY
3. Hazardous Work Area
This is caused when working in an area that is classified as hazardous,
requiring special safety equipment and clothing. Restrictions may limit
time and exposure of workers to the area, resulting in less time on tools in
the area.

4. Tool and Equipment Shortage


This is caused when there is insufficient quantity or quality of tools and
equipment to meet the needs of the project.
