What is an industrial electrician?

Many electricians do their work based on the environment they’re in: for example,

  • A residential electrician works on houses, units, apartments and other dwellings
  • A commercial electrician works on commercial premises, like office buildings and stores,
  • So naturally, an industrial electrician works on industrial worksites, like factories, manufacturing warehouses, assembly plants and more.

These facilities often have and utilise a lot of heavy machinery and equipment on site and therefore require more electrical work and power than a standard residential dwelling or commercial office.

As such, an industrial electrician Perth specialist will move from one job site to another frequently and will need additional training in their apprenticeship to deal with navigating harsher environments and tight spaces.
