The Sheet Metal worker designs, fabricates, assembles, installs and repairs sheet metal products. With fabrication work, sheet metal workers lay out and measure pieces to close specifications. They use tools such as power shears, press brakes, drill presses and computerized cutting equipment to cut and shape material. They assemble and join the pieces with various techniques using mechanical fasteners and welding. Sheet metal workers work from verbal instructions or blueprints or design small jobs themselves.


They will work with many different types of material such as black iron, galvanized steel, satin-coated steel, stainless steel, aluminium, copper, brass, nickel, tin plate and other alloys. Some may also work with fiberglass, ceramics, plastics and other metal substitutes. Parts and materials may be laid out and cut in the shop and assembled on construction or industrial sites.


Sheet metal workers may specialize in onsite installation, shop manufacturing, or servicing and maintenance of installed equipment and systems. Those who work in installation may specialize in heating, ventilation and air conditioning, boiler lagging / vessel cladding, roofing products, architectural sheet metal, custom metal products, food service products, secondary systems for environmental projects, pneumatic conveyance or signage.


Hazards are extremely high within this trade working with sharp metal pieces, at heights, around excessive noise and vibration, as well as exposure to heat and fumes. Sheet Metal workers would normally obtain the required knowledge and skills through completion of a Journeyman Sheet Metal Program together with related experience.

Industry Changes

The government has recently set targets for greater energy efficiency to combat climate change. With further training, you may be able to install and maintain renewable energy technologies such as solar powered panel systems. Over the next ten years, the employment outlook is considered to be excellent. The lack of trained and qualified Sheet Metal workers and the expected increased retirement rate in this trade over the next decade highlight the opportunities within the industry for good potential jobs.


Employment for Sheet Metal workers 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. Many Sheet Metal workers are employed by sheet metal, air-conditioning and heating contractors. A few are self-employed or work in shops with related trades. Some are employed by roofing contractors to install flashing and coping as most sheet metal workers work in the construction industry. Experienced Sheet Metal workers may become specialists in design and layout work or in estimating the cost of installations. They may advance to supervisory positions or go into business for themselves.



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.


Sheet Metal workers are trained to work safely and wear special equipment such as safety harnesses to protect themselves from falls and other injuries. 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.
