Gangers Handbook - Learning and Development for Supervisors
IPWEA NSW has produced a Gangers handbook for use by work supervisors and works staff, within local government, public works, constructions and contracting industries in city, urban and country environments.  It will also be of value to young engineers as they gain experience in the field.  The handbook allows members of the workforce to learn what 'works staff' do and open up opportunities for workers seeking advancement in their careers.  Encompassing such a broad range of activities, the handbook is written at a ' not-too technical' level.

Assistance of more qualified personnel should be sought as required.

The Gangers handbook will be the practical reference book used during the training.  A copy will be provided to all participants free of charge.
