An electrician is a tradesman specializing in electrical wiring of buildings, stationary machines and
related equipment. Electricians may be employed in the installation of new electrical components or the
maintenance and repair of existing electrical infrastructure. Electricians may also specialize in wiring ships,airplanes and other mobile platforms.
Although the skills necessary for an electrician vary from job to job, certain abilities come in handy in
most areas. The DLI suggests that steady hands and strong hand-eye coordination ensure safety and
precision in repairs. The department further states that color blindness is actually a risk on the job, because of color-coding and wire identification, so good vision, particularly color vision, is a must. Electricians who work on power lines or towers must be physically fit to do so and possess a good sense of equilibrium. The BLS adds that math skills, drafting skills, and attention to detail on complex projects and schematics are good abilities for an individual to possess.
An employee in this class performs skilled electrical work in the installation, alteration, repair, and
maintenance of electrical equipment and wiring used in communication, light, and power systems.
Assignments, supervision, and review are received from Building Maintenance Supervisor. The employee
may supervise maintenance staff on a project by project basis. Performs related work as required.
