Laborers

Laborers do repeated production-related tasks that are by nature physically demanding.  They may be required to lift and carry heavy objects such as sheet metal blanks, work-in-process, finished goods and a variety of manufacturing-related containers.  Laborers may, under supervision, start and stop manufacturing equipment and feed metal into forming and shaping machines.  They may, with training, prepare manufacturing machines for use.

Job tasks required of laborers may include the following activities: shearing, sawing, rolling, punching, riveting, spot-welding, forming the metal, assembly of components, application of airtight seals, and packaging of work-in-process and finished goods.  Additionally, laborers are required to assist with daily plant clean-up and waste material disposal and other duties, as assigned.
