International Association of Bridge, Structural, Ornamental and Reinforcing Iron Workers
Most Iron Workers do more than one type of ironwork. Each has its own required skills. Reinforcing-Iron Workers place reinforcing steel bars in forms that will be filled with concrete. The bars must be lifted, carried, placed in position and tied with wire at the intersections of the steel. Structural-Iron Workers assemble, erect, and install prefabricated iron shapes to form the framework of buildings, towers, bridges, and other structures. A Shop-Ironworker fabricates the individual steel components, which form the structural steel framework for the buildings and bridges.
