What is an Ironworker?
Ironworkers are skilled craftsmen who erect, assemble or install fabricated structural steel products, usually large steel members. These members are used in the erection of industrial, commercial or large residential buildings. Ironworkers also erect the steel framework on bridges, storage tanks and overhead crane runways that support heavy equipment. They also install reinforcing steel(rebar), erect pre-cast concrete, ornamental iron work such as stairways, catwalks, grating, grids, screens, siding and mental windows. Ironworkers also perform the rigging of heavy machinery, pressure vessels, storage tanks and materials. Ironworkers are also welders and become well versed in several types of cutting of steel and alloys.
Ironworkers cannot have a fear of heights and must be able to work in all kinds of environments. Ironworkers work out doors mostly however they also work along side equipment that can reach very high temperatures. Ironworkers are exposed to many hazards and must have a keen awareness of these dangers to protect themselves and those around them from injury.
