ELECTRICIAN INSIDE WIREMAN

 

What does an Electrician do?

 

Construction electricians work in all phases of electrical construction and service industry. They perform electrical construction and service work ranging form small single-family dwellings to large-scale facilities. These facilities include retail shopping centers, hospitals, high-rise office and apartment buildings, state of the art schools and universities, manufacturing plants, bio-medical laboratories, chemical plants and nuclear power plants. Electrical workers install conduits, wires and cables, plugs and switches, lighting and power distribution systems, emergency power systems and telecommunication systems. Telecommunications consist of voice, video and data installations. Electricians must be able to work from blueprints, layout, assemble, repair, test and troubleshoot all electrical and electronic systems. They must be able to work well with other craftsman while following all safe work practices and following all of the national electrical codes required for a safe and quality installation.
