Lead statement
Structural metal and platework fabricators and fitters fabricate, assemble, fit and install steel or other metal components for buildings, bridges, tanks, towers, boilers, pressure vessels and other similar structures and products. They are employed in structural steel, boiler and platework fabrication plants and by heavy machinery manufacturing and shipbuilding companies.

Main duties
Structural metal and platework fabricators and fitters perform some or all of the following duties:
Study engineering drawings and blueprints, determine the materials required, and plan the sequence of tasks to cut metal most efficiently
Construct patterns and templates as guides for layouts
Lay out reference points and patterns on heavy metal according to component specifications
Rig, hoist and move materials to storage areas or within worksite
Assemble and fit metal sections and plates to form complete units or subunits using tack welding, bolting, riveting or other methods
Set up and operate various heavy-duty metal-working machines such as brake presses, shears, cutting torches, grinders and drills, including computer numerical control (CNC) equipment, to bend, cut, form, punch, drill or otherwise form heavy-metal components
Install fabricated components in final product.
