Hi, Good Day to you, hope this finds you well. Not sure how to answer this question but here are a few web sites to explore… Good luck with your career. John

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics holds your answers and is a good place to research about the various jobs/positions in the construction carpentry field including position descriptions, pay scale, etc. across the USA.

What type of work environment solely depends on were the job is located at. I have supervised Carpenters doing a lot of different work in a variety of neat and hazardous locations on military bases across the USA; in the mountains, on ammunition storage areas, top secret buildings and locations. Guess the best way to answer this question is were are you willing to work, in what location, what hazards are present, what height, etc.

Good luck with your career choice and enjoy the research. John

Debbie’s Answer

Hi Hans,

Carpenters work indoors and outdoors on many types of construction projects, from installing kitchen cabinets to building highways and bridges. Carpenters may work in cramped spaces and frequently alternate between lifting, standing, and kneeling. Those who work outdoors are subject to variable weather, which may affect a project’s schedule.

Injuries and Illnesses
Carpenters sometimes get injured on the job, such as from strains caused by overexertion due to lifting and moving materials. Other common injuries result from falls, slips, trips, and contact with objects or equipment. Workers often wear equipment such as boots, hardhats, protective eyewear, and reflective vests as a safeguard against injuries.

Work Schedules
Most carpenters work full time, which may include evenings and weekends to meet clients’ deadlines. Extreme temperatures or inclement weather may impact building construction timelines, which in turn may affect carpenters’ work hours.
