What is a Rodworker?

A reinforcing rodworker is a person who fabricates, handles, sorts, cuts, bends, rigs, places, burns, welds, stresses, grouts and ties all material used to reinforce concrete construction.

In addition, a rodworker installs mechanical splices for reinforcing steel bars and performs cad and thermite welding for the splicing of reinforcing steel bars. A rodworker reads and understands all structural and placing drawings and bar lists that are related to the work operations as referred.

Annually, 13,000 journeymen participate in upgrade programs - professional Ironworkers who are striving for more knowledge, greater professionalism, and the next step up in a tough but rewarding career.
