Drywall Framer Job Description
Drywall framers normally get to work indoors. In some cases, they may have to apply exterior finishes outside of a house. This career is physically hard on employees due to the extended periods of kneeling, bending, standing, and stretching. Heavy equipment often has to be moved back and forth while working. Additionally, work conditions can be dangerous when working with sharp tools or in high places with ladders. Protection is a high priority of all drywall framers, so safety equipment like gloves, goggles, and masks are used at all times.
