Quarry Rock Splitters Jobs
Quarry Rock Splitters Overview
A quarry rock splitter is responsible for breaking down large chunks of stone into smaller, more manageable pieces. Training consists of an apprenticeship under the supervision of a more experienced splitter. Splitters must be in peak physical condition and be able to withstand noisy conditions and long days of work in addition to knowing how to properly bend the stone to their will. Rock splitters work in quarries, railroad yards, and a number of other locations where their skills are needed.
Quarry Rock Splitters Education Requirements
Quarry rock splitters need only a high school diploma or GED in order to work. Training is given on the job under the supervision of a more experienced splitter. However, the job is more physical than mental in effort; quarry rock splitters must be in peak physical condition, able to bend over and straighten out all day, work in cramped, often uncomfortable conditions, and be able to lift heavy objects. In addition, adherence to safety protocols is required. Working in a quarry can be extremely dangerous, and keeping their wits about them is essential.
Quarry Rock Splitters Job Market
The job market for quarry rock splitters is expected to grow by 17 percent by 2022, a slightly above-average estimate for most careers. The job itself tends to be rather specialized, and the yearly openings during that time of growth are estimated to be just 140 per year. However, for someone who enjoys a physical challenge and hard labor, the job would be perfect.
Quarry Rock Splitters Salary
Quarry rock splitters make between $9.76 an hour on the bottom of the scale to as much as $24.12 an hour, with a median hourly wage of around $15.52. Yearly salary varies from $20,300 to $50,200. The amount of pay is determined largely by the employer and the experience of the rock splitter.
