Electrical Helper

Electrical helpers assist electricians by performing duties requiring less skill. They measure, cut, and bend wire and conduit, trace out short circuits in wiring, strip insulation from wire ends, drill holes and pull or push wiring through openings, and maintain tools and equipment.

Work Conditions

Electrical helpers work indoors and out, in homes, businesses, factories, and construction sites. They occasionally work in cramped spaces. Constant lifting, standing, and kneeling can be tiring. Those who work in factories are often subject to noisy machinery. Some may need to travel long distances to get to jobsites. Electrical helpers have a higher-than-average injury and illness rate. The most common risks are electrical shocks and burns, but they also risk cuts, falls, and other common construction-related injuries. As a result, they must follow safety guidelines and wear protective clothing and safety glasses to reduce these risks.

Employment Outlook

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of electrical helpers is expected to grow by 29 percent or more between 2010 and 2020, much faster than the average for all occupations.
