8 STRUCTURAL WORK OCCUPATIONS
800.662-010 to 821.361-018

    This category includes occupations concerned with fabricating, erecting, installing, paving, painting, repairing, and similarly working structures or structural parts, such as bridges, buildings, roads, transportation equipment frames and structures, cables, girders, plates, and frames.
