They often work in close association with other trades people such as machinists, instrument mechanics, welders, electricians and pipefitters. Working conditions for millwrights vary from one job to another. On construction job sites, they are exposed to a variety of weather conditions. In plant maintenance, they may work indoors and outdoors. Hours of work vary: shift work and some overtime may be required. The work environment may be noisy, and there is a strong emphasis on safety while working with machinery.
