Iron Worker

An ironworker connecting structural steel hand-signals the crane operator

Iron workers construct the steel that is the strength of commercial buildings, industrial plants, power plants, highrise buildings and many other steel structures. They also form the steel reinforcement rod (rebar) used to strengthen concrete forms. They are proficient at rigging crane loads and in the industrial setting they are apt at moving large machinery and process vessels.
