About Ironworker

June 2nd, 2017

Ironworkers specialize in constructing and installing metal structures. Their exact tasks depend on the type of company they are working with. The construction industry is the major employer of structural ironworkers. These workers install iron beams, columns, and girders during the construction of bridges, buildings, and other large structures.
The road to becoming an ironworker is through an apprenticeship program, which is usually 3 to 4 years. Only those who have completed their high school are eligible to enroll in these apprenticeship programs. This is a physically demanding job. Ironworkers must have the physical strength and stamina to meet the strenuous demands of the job.
Prospective employers will use the interview to question you extensively about your knowledge of the job, especially the risks involved. Do you know what are the risks involved in this job? Most importantly, are you aware of the security measures that you need to take to protect yourself and the other workers on site? How much importance do you give to these security measures?
