Operating Engineers are the first on a construction job and the often the last to leave. They survey the sites and make the cuts to clear the earth in preparation for a construction project. Operating Engineers operate the bulldozers, the motor graders, the backhoes and the cranes that help to form and shape the infrastructure and skylines that surround us all. Operating Engineers can also be found working the mines and digging the wells. They operate the boilers, the generators and the heating and cooling systems, as well as maintain the buildings and grounds, that help make you comfortable at work and play.
