Sheet Metal Workers News

Sheet metal workers held about 142,300 jobs in 2012. About 59 percent worked in the construction industry and 27 percent worked in manufacturing.

Sheet metal fabricators usually work in small shops and manufacturing plants that are well ventilated. They often must lift heavy materials and stand for long periods.

Workers who install sheet metal at construction sites must bend, climb, and squat, sometimes in close quarters or in awkward positions.

Sheet metal installers who work outdoors are exposed to all kinds of weather.
