작업 설명

As you might have guessed, Elevator and Escalator Installers and Repairers put in new elevators and escalators in buildings, and then perform maintenance, troubleshooting, and repair work as needed. They can also install moving walkways like the ones in airports, as well as other types of lifts. These workers are experts when it comes to hydraulics, motors, the electrical components that power the equipment, and the computerized systems that control them. 

For big jobs where elevator cables or bearings have to be swapped out, a crew might be called in to tackle the work as fast as possible. Many tall buildings rely heavily on their elevators working properly and safely, just as malls, subways, airports, and other heavily-trafficked hubs need their escalators up and running at all times. That’s why Elevator and Escalator Installers and Repairers are such critical players in today’s modern society, even if we don’t always see their hard work behind-the-scenes!

기대와 희생

Elevator and Escalator Installers and Repairers work hard to ensure the proper operation of powerful equipment that can be hazardous if not installed right or working correctly. In particular, elevators carry people to great heights, several stories into the air. Thus workers in these fields bear a tremendous responsibility to make sure equipment functions the way it is designed to, and to find and fix any issues before they become serious. They’re also expected to respond promptly when emergencies are reported.  

현재 동향

Elevator and Escalator Installers and Repairers are predicted to stay in demand in the coming years, as more buildings are constructed and are being built taller than ever. Meanwhile there’s a wide push to increase accessibility for persons with physical limitations, which means areas that used to only have stairs may need additional access means installed, such as lifts. There is also thankfully more attention paid to safety issues within older buildings, to include ensuring that elevators are being fully maintained and repaired. When newer equipment is installed, it’s often more technologically advanced, which is why the Bureau of Labor Statistics expects new workers entering the field with some electronics education will be the most competitive in the job market. 

이 직업에 종사하는 사람들은 어렸을 때 어떤 일을 즐겼습니까?

Workers in this field likely always enjoyed rolling up their sleeves and getting their hands on some complicated project. They like big mechanical things, and may have a preference for indoor work versus being outside in the elements. Because elevators and escalators have many electrical controls aspects, installers and repairers probably studied electrical topics in school or maybe even on their own as a hobby. They are detail-oriented and precise, and take pride in ensuring their projects work the way they’re designed to!
