1) Cut and fit wire mesh or fabric, using hooked rods, and position fabric or mesh in concrete to reinforce concrete.
2) Cut rods to required lengths, using metal shears, hacksaws, bar cutters, or acetylene torches.
3) Bend steel rods with hand tools and rodbending machines, and weld them with arc-welding equipment.
4) Determine quantities, sizes, shapes, and locations of reinforcing rods from blueprints, sketches, or oral instructions.
5) Position and secure steel bars, rods, cables, or mesh in concrete forms, using fasteners, rod-bending machines, blowtorches, and hand tools.
6) Space and fasten together rods in forms according to blueprints, using wire and pliers.
1) Assemble hoisting equipment and rigging, such as cables, pulleys, and hooks, to move heavy equipment and materials.
2) Bolt aligned structural-steel members in position for permanent riveting, bolting, or welding into place.
3) Connect columns, beams, and girders with bolts, following blueprints and instructions from supervisors.
4) Drive drift pins through rivet holes in order to align rivet holes in structural-steel members with corresponding holes in previously placed members.
5) Erect metal and precast concrete components for structures such as buildings, bridges, dams, towers, storage tanks, fences, and highway guard rails.
6) Fasten structural-steel members to hoist cables, using chains, cables, or rope.
