AFAIK the tool kit depends on the duties you are expected to undertake. Never really heard of a handyman on a building site, though.

Marckitter, did you get your cscs card that you asked about in November?
Fret not, a forum is a collection of opinions. Above, are mine.

Which is correct? Metre or Meter? Click the link to find out more.

Working on anything electrical? have you got a multi meter? why not? Would you hit a nail with a shoe?

Do you mean a labourer ? strength, obey orders and a pair of steel toe caps - It may help if you speak multiple languages

We get "semi-skilleds" these days who have no qualifications but can do some demolition (which is a separate ticket), knocking-outdoor openings, etc. They tend to have a podge, a cordless drill, a saw, tape and a hammer as well as maybe a club hammer and a bolster. That's about it. Any SM worth his salt won't let them undertake skilled trades work, in part because they aren't insurable
