Job Description


Steeplejacks spend much of their time installing roof conductors, down conductors and earth terminations on all types of structures. These include industrial chimneys, power stations and chemical works, church spires, bridges and high-rise buildings. They also fit aircraft warning lights on tall structures, replace roof glass, repair masonry, paint structures such as bridges, dismantle or demolish tall chimneys or buildings and inspect structures for damage after high winds, for example. The work can be dangerous so steeplejacks are very aware of safety issues, including the safety of those on the ground, and the need to follow strict health and safety regulations at all times.
