Sheet metal work is one of the most dangerous vocations in the country given the scale and sharpness as well as equipment used in this profession. Sheet metal workers have to contend with noise, the danger of having their hands or bodies sliced open, as well as items falling on them. Sheet metal is used in building and construction, and industrially in areas such as the building of silos and water tanks; suffice it to say, sheet metal workers play a vital role in the economy. If you’re a sheet metal worker, chances are that you are represented by a union which has promised to have your back in case you get injured. However, counting on union management to do the right thing after a catastrophic injury such as a back injury can be aan uphill task given the intensive medical treatment you will require and the limitations of workers’ compensation benefits for sheet metal workers.

Here are some of the risks associated with sheet metal work:
- Cutting hazard due to the use of shears or snips. If these cutting tools aren’t properly maintained, or if they have a defect, it is very easy to get hurt by the sharp edges they are made of.
- Sheet metal workers are exposed to dust and microscopic metal particles due to the power tools used in the cutting process. Because of this, all sheet metal workers as per OSHA must be provided with respirator masks while working.
- Sheet metal workers may also get their clothing snagged in malfunctioning machinery, leading to them being sucked into a machine and getting severely injured.
- Sheet metal is undoubtedly heavy. Should a fellow worker due to fatigue or poor training drop the sheet, it can land on one’s feet and cause crushing injuries. Back injuries are also common when working with sheet metal due to their sheer weight.
Some of the most common injuries faced by sheet metal workers include:
- Back injuries
- Slip and fall injuries
- Traumatic brain injury
- Eye injuries
- Repetitive strain injuries
