Here are 4 carpentry foreman tips that will help you run work smoothly. There are many jobs that we as carpenters try to manage well but sometimes things just don’t turn out like we want them to. For some it happens more often than others. I wrote down a few things that help me run carpentry work more efficiently and I want to share them with you so without further a due here they are the fundamentals of a carpentry supervisor or foreman.

1 ESTABLISH YOUR AUTHORITY

Every foreman should set reasonable standards and limits for their crew. If there are no limits on your job than people will walk all over you. They may come in late for work. They may even leave early so you should defiantly need to establish your authority or you may have bad results that could have been prevented.

2 LEARN HOW TO GET RESULTS THROUGH YOUR CREW

There are many other ways to get result from your crew besides telling them to hurry up. Foreman that often tell carpenters to hurry up usually get crap work or may get less work out of their men, depending on whose under him. Sometimes if you treat workers like people they tend to want to work harder for you because you appreciate their work. It really all depends on whom you are dealing with.

3. MAKE QUALITY, SAFETY, AND PRODUCTIVITY A PRIORITY

If you make quality, safety and productivity part of every plan, every decision, and every day you will be on the road to success. All of these are essentials in the carpentry business if you don’t have them you are headed for doom and gloom like the economy is in right now.

4. BECOME A CONFIDENT AND RESPECTED LEADER

When you are confident in your work you are saying to yourself and others that you know what you are doing and everything is under control. You are saying basically that you got this don’t worry about it. We will be successful. Being respected by others shows you have integrity that’s important when being a carpenter foreman.
