Electroplating Workers

Work Environment

Job conditions are generally good for platers today. In most plants, improved ventilation systems have reduced the odor and humidity problems that used to be common. Many plants are completely modernized, with automated electroplating equipment.

Electroplaters are on their feet most of their working day. They may have to lift and carry moderately heavy objects, but in most cases, mechanical devices are used for the heavy work.
