High Rise Rodman

4 weeks

In the High Rise Rodman program trainees will learn to cut, bend, layout and place reinforcing steel rods, welded wire fabric and composite materials in a wide variety of poured concrete products and structures.  Some of these include buildings, highways, bridges, stadiums and towers. Rodman workers preassemble reinforcing material by laying it out and connecting subassemblies on the ground prior to final placement. They position, align and secure components according to drawings using a variety of methods. They also place and stress various post-tensioning systems in structures such as, parking garages, bridges and stadiums where longer unsupported spans are required. After placing post-tensioning systems, they stress the tendons to predetermined specifications using hydraulic jacks and pumps.

High Rise Rodman workers generally work outside in all weather, and some work indoors in manufacturing plants or underground work sites. Work sites may be in a variety of locations ranging from remote areas where they could be working on dams, bridges or mining projects to urban environments where they could work on high rise buildings, parking garages, transit systems, tunnels or stadiums. This type of work requires considerable amount of standing, bending, crawling, lifting, climbing, pulling and reaching and is often conducted in cramped, confined spaces or at heights. Hazards of this type of work would include injury from eletrocution, falls or falling objects. Inclement weather can shut down projects for extended periods which may result in overtime work in order to meet deadlines. Team coordination is a large component of the occupation especially when hoisting and placing large heavy components high above the ground.
