Scope of Work

The work of Electrical Construction Workers (Inside Wiremen) can be divided into broad categories such as new construction, remodeling, maintenance, and repair.  While the jobs differ, the mental and physical skills acquired in a properly designed and administered training program prepare the electrical worker for this entire range of work.  During a career as an electrical construction worker, a person will likely be involved in many different types of jobs presenting many new and different challenges, working with his or her hands as well as with their mind.  Much of the work involves installation, assembling, testing, repairing, layout, and design of electrical wiring, fixtures, and apparatus used for power, light, heating, air conditioning, and many types of control systems.  Many jobs now incorporate computers.  Due to the nature of the work, above average math and reading skills are essential.

Working Conditions

Work is done both indoors and outdoors in all temperatures, weather, and environmental conditions.  The trade, at times, requires considerable physical effort for lifting, carrying materials, ladders, and tools, and climbing ladders and scaffolds.  Since most of the work is performed from ladders, scaffolds, or powered lifts, the Electrical Construction Worker must be comfortable working at a variety of heights.  Most job functions require the use of hand and power tools.
