Maintenance workers operate in all sectors including industrial manufacturing plants, schools, libraries, and hospitals. Maintenance technicians often work on a rotating shift schedule because they are needed to address emergencies that happen at any time of day or night. Maintenance workers will also need training in the operation of machines specific to their location as well as safety regulations relevant to their industry.
