Architectural Glass & Metal Technicians, also known as Glaziers, cut, fit and install various types of glass in metal and wooden frames for windows, skylights, store fronts and display cases, or on building fronts, interior walls, ceilings, tables and other similar surfaces, and sometimes work with glass substitutes such as plastic. Glaziers cut and install glass and aluminum systems for commercial, residential and automotive applications. 

 

They also lay out, fabricate, install frames, hardware, storefronts, wall facings, manual sliding doors, window sashes, manual door closers, automatic door operators and certain walls. Many will also install suspended glass fronts, stuck glass fronts, auto glass, art glass and other specialty products.

Operating hoists and cranes to position glass in place is a highly recommended skill to possess.

 

Glaziers work in a variety of environments and work outdoors at construction sites, sometimes on scaffolds and swing-stages along with platforms suspended from the top of high rise buildings. Others may work in factories installing glass in wooden or metal frames, or in shops replacing glass in vehicles or furniture.

          

 

                                         Industry Changes

 

Employment for Glaziers is expected to increase. Turnover in this field is high, so many openings occur each year. Demand should also be high for those who stay informed about new developments in this field.

 

Over the next ten years, the employment outlook is considered to be excellent. The lack of trained and qualified Glaziers and the expected increased retirement rate in these trades over the next decade highlight the excellent opportunities within the industry for good potential jobs.

 

Glaziers are employed by construction companies, architects, interior design firms and glazier shops. The steady demand for repair work somewhat offsets economic slowdowns in the construction industry, but conditions in the construction industry do affect employment prospects, and employment may be seasonal.

 

Experienced glaziers may advance to supervisory positions such as foreman or contract manager, or set up their own shops doing work for private homes and small businesses.

 

                                               Safety

 

Safe working practices and accident prevention are the primary importance to the health and safety of all person(s) at any or all work place environments. All person(s) including employee, employer and government, share this responsibility in order to keep everyone free of any dangers or accidents that may cause an individual(s) serious bodily harm or death.

 

Glaziers are trained to work safely and wear special equipment such as safety harnesses to protect themselves from falls and other injuries. There is some risk of injury from sharp edges and broken glass.

The Occupational Health and Safety Acts and Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS) Regulations, should be consistently reviewed and enforced in every work place environment. Educating and understanding these regulations is everyone’s responsibility in order to keep a safe work place environment.

 

Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) has contributed to a safer work place environment. Health and safety has become a high priority in the workplace due to increased awareness of dangers and the identifications of hazardous materials.

 

Practicing health and safety is a tremendous contribution to a safe and accident free work place environment.
