The iron working industry is very strenuous and most tedious. An Ironworker must be alert at all times in order to perform the duties of Lifting, carrying and installing concrete reinforcing steel. An Ironworker is a stalwart individual with a great deal of upper body strength. Blueprint and drafting reading are a part of the training to become an Ironworker and safety is a must in training and working side by side with co-workers and other Craftsmen.
Ironworkers perform everyday tasks both inside and majority of the time work is performed outside in most weather conditions.
