Steel erection is one of the top 10 most hazardous occupations according to BLS fatality data year after year. Steel erection work includes heavy duty high rise structures, metal buildings and even signs. Steel erection is often the skeletal core of bridges, office buildings, commercial, retail and industrial structures. OSHA published Subpart R, 1926.750, the current steel erection rule in 2001.
