Drywall Installers and Finishers

Work Environment

Drywall installation and finishing can be strenuous work. The large, heavy panels are difficult to handle and frequently require more than one person to maneuver them into position. Workers must spend long hours on their feet, often bending and kneeling. To work high up on walls or on ceilings, workers must stand on stilts, ladders, or scaffolding, risking falls. Another possible hazard is injury from power tools such as saws and nailers. Because sanding creates a lot of dust, finishers wear protective masks and safety glasses.
