Construction Craft Worker

Job Overview

Roll up your sleeves – expect to get busy, a little dirty and get learning. As a Construction Craft Worker, you’re in an ideal job for a new entrant to the energy-related construction industry who wants to learn the ropes. You will do a lot of the heavy lifting assisting welders, carpenters, insulators, concrete finishers, boilermakers and ironworkers. Watch what they do. One day, you might be one of them. What a great way to get started in the industry!

Construction craft workers do a lot of heavy lifting assisting welders, carpenters, insulators, concrete finishers, boilermakers and ironworkers. They’re the second set of hands for many in energy-related construction. One day, the job might be to run a chain saw, and the next day, it could be installing valves or helping surveyors slash trees and move equipment. You could also work with a pipeline crew, helping to space pipe.

This is an ideal job for a new entrant to the energy industry. Construction craft workers do a little of everything and perform a wide array of construction-related tasks within all phases: preparing and cleaning a work site, setting up and removing equipment, assisting on concrete, masonry, steel, wood or pre-cast erection projects, assisting in demolition and excavation and possibly conduct site safety and security checks. As far as equipment goes, they could be operating air hammers, earth tampers, cement mixers, mechanical hoists or surveying and measuring equipment.
