8 STRUCTURAL WORK OCCUPATIONS
821.361-022 to 861.381-026

    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.
