Cable Television Technicians

Work Environment

The work is moderately heavy, involving occasional lifting of up to 50 pounds. A large part of the cable television technician's time is spent on ladders and poles or in confined or underground spaces. These activities require care and precision. As with all maintenance work around conductors, there is some danger of electrical shock. The coaxial cables used to transmit television signals are from one-half inch to over one inch in diameter. Cables have to be manipulated into position for splicing, which involves medium to heavy physical work.
