Ironworkers install structural and reinforcing iron and steel to form and support buildings, bridges and roads.
Ironworkers perform physically demanding and dangerous work, often working at great heights. As a result, workers must wear safety harnesses to reduce the risk of falling and other equipment to ensure safety.
Ironworkers learn their trade through a registered apprenticeship program that is usually cost free to the student. A high-school diploma or equivalent is typically required to begin your apprenticeship and career in the trade.
