A Gas System Welder is responsible for welding steel gas lines using electric arc and oxyacetylene welding equipment; fusing polyethylene (PE) 2406 pipe for the construction, maintenance, and repair of the City's gas utility system; and for assisting in the manual and technical aspects of gas line construction, maintenance, or repair activities.  This work requires strict conformance to City of Mesa welding and fusion specifications and procedures, as well as state and federal regulations governing the natural gas industry.  An employee in this class must be certified annually in the use of arc welding equipment and PE pipe fusion and must demonstrate competency at any other time as may be required by the City to be retained in this class.  Since much of the work of this class is performed on pressurized lines, there is considerable potential for exposure to hazardous conditions.  Welding is usually done in a confined space requiring awkward body positioning and may be performed under a variety of adverse weather conditions.  Employees in this class must be certified as PE fusers as well as arc and gas welders.  This position is also responsible for performing related duties as required.

An employee in this class is required to use appropriate safety equipment and follow safety procedures in performing assignments.  This class is subject to emergency call-out and must be available for stand-by, as required.  Although welds and fusion joints are inspected by a Gas System Inspector, this class is supervised by a Gas System Crew Leader through observation of work in progress, skill level, productivity, and completed work.  This class is FLSA nonexempt.

Please refer to the link below for the full job description and additional information regarding assignments, preferred qualifications, and essential functions.
