Layout Workers

Work Environment

Most layout workers are employed indoors in machine shops that—though fairly clean, properly lighted, and well ventilated—can be very noisy at times. Although layout work is not physically strenuous, workers must stand for most of the working day. They often wear special shoes to reduce foot fatigue. In addition, safety glasses are required since cutting tools, moving machine parts, and flying metal chips could cause injury to the eyes.
