On the Job: A Day in the Life of an Ironworker
You might see us atop and tied off the sides of buildings under construction – if you happen to look up that far.
Ironworking is one of the most exciting industries around. We don’t go to the office. We build the office.
Ironworking consists of several specialties. They all require extensive skills and safety training, which we teach in our apprenticeship program, a commitment to teamwork, and a good sense of balance.
Erect and connect iron beams to construct the skeletons of buildings. Projects can include bridges, stadiums and towers – mostly industrial and commercial work.
Install stairs, windows, doors, gates, grates, platforms and fences. This work involves adding the finishing touches on buildings as opposed to installing the essential framework.
Riggers and Machinery Moving:
Move the equipment of ironworking and secure the iron and other materials lifted by forklifts, cranes and power hoists, preparing and operating them for projects.
Welding and Burning:
Welding touches every part of the ironworking trade, from beginning to end. Our training program offers welding certification.
Ironworking is a potentially-dangerous job, and every person on site must remain safety conscious at all times. This job requires a commitment to teamwork since ironworkers typically complete work in pairs or groups. Each person’s alertness ensures that everyone goes home healthy at the end of the day.
