Painters & Glaziers
Scope of Work
Work includes indoor and outdoor work, brush/roller/spray, with most work being more than 10' off the ground (towers, tall buildings, etc.). Painters prepare surfaces of buildings and other structures and then apply paint by means of brushes, rollers or sprayers. Work with varnish, enamels, lacquer and other materials. May also paint interior rooms or cover walls with paper, fabrics, vinyls or other materials (paperhanger). The painters must be able to mix paints as well as do sandblasting and waterblasting.
Painters work both indoors and out. Outside work is done in relatively mild weather. In some jobs, especially maintenance and redecoration of offices and building, the painter may be required to work evenings or weekends. Work is seasonal; however, new materials and methods tend to give more steady employment throughout the year. Physical and health hazards include the dangers of poisoning, falling from ladders and scaffolds, breathing paint fumes and dust. The work involves standing, bending, climbing and working with arms over the head most of the time.
