Fluor's Industrial Relations team evaluates and mitigates domestic and international labor or employment issues to promote and maintain labor harmony. Through regional analysis, the group determines various labor posture approaches and makes sure working conditions comply with applicable laws and regulations, including those applying to craft compensation, employee relations, collective bargaining agreements and community relations.
For more than 40 years, Fluor has been an industry leader in the use of modular construction. Modular execution begins during a project's conceptual design phase as a coordinated effort that encompasses all EPC project functions. Fluor provides modular construction and construction management services from design, through module assembly and transportation, to erection and final turnover. Following the conceptual design and detailed design phases, Fluor's modular teams manage and coordinate the various suppliers, subcontractors and assembly yards needed to construct and test the modules. Fluor arranges for loading, transport and unloading of the assembled modules including barge, ship, rail or over-the-road transport.
Fluor retains highly experienced rigging specialists who assist projects with rigging plans, studies, detailed design of rigging attachments, consultation, technical subcontract selection and management. Rigging plans and analysis for a project usually result in significant savings through efficiencies, construction equipment savings and avoidance of costly problems and accidents.
Welding Certification and Services
All welders performing ASME/NBIC code work are required to be qualified and certified in accordance with the original code of construction and ASME Section IX. Welder qualification test records are available at the site of the welding. The project quality representative assures only qualified welders perform code work. The quality representative also assures all welders performing code work have reviewed the applicable weld procedure specifications (WPSs).
The test WPS used for the qualification of welders is selected based on the anticipated WPSs to be used in production, including welding processes, joint thicknesses and diameters to be welded. To requalify, due to expired Fluor certification(s), testing may be reduced, provided a record of the previous qualification is available.
Fluor Constructors International, Inc. is the union craft arm of Fluor Corporation, providing construction management and direct-hire construction expertise.
