In new buildings electricians may need to read blueprints to pin point the specific areas of a building where powerpoints and electrical wiring need to be placed. In factories, electricians are employed to maintain robots, motors and generators and they are in charge of maintaining machinery before it breaks down, this can also include writing a report on equipment – what needs to be replaced and what is still in good working condition.

This includes installing conduits in the wall – these are tubes that are buried behind the walls where the wiring is to be pulled through. This involves working with the builders during construction of a new building. Once installed they need to check the correct amount of electricity is coming through and adjust it if need be.
