The work environment characteristics described here are representative of those an employee may encounter while performing the essential functions of this job. Reasonable accommodations will be made to enable individuals with disabilities to perform the essential functions of this job. While performing the duties of this position, the employee is regularly exposed to moving objects (materials handler and transported throughout the plant via cranes, fork trucks and other employees). The employee is also regularly exposed to hot materials and sparks emitted throughout the welding process as well as various other operations ongoing throughout the plant. The employee is frequently exposed to fumes and airborne particles. The employee is also frequently exposed to sharp and abrasive edges which may result in scrapes, cutes, and bruises. The employee is occasionally exposed to humid conditions. The noise level in the work environment is usually loud. Considerable glare, ultraviolet light and sparks are emitted from the welding process, thus necessitating the use of personal protective equipment by the welder and enclosing the work cell as best as possible to minimize the exposure of these factors to others.
- Current welding certification is preferred
High school diploma or General Education Degree (GED)
- Two or more years of welding experience.
- Familiarity with over head crane.
- Must be able to pass initial testing.
- Must be able to work overtime based on business needs.
