Pipelayers are exposed to a high-risk level. Pipelayers often work at a height, exposing them to the risk of a fall from a height. Pipelayers are also at risk of musculoskeletal injuries from manual handling of heavy piping and tools, inhalation of dust particles and metal fragments which can lead to respiratory problems, and exposure to hazardous materials, such as refrigerants, oxidizers, and flammable products. Given the high level of risk involved in the job, pipe fitters do not qualify for income protection insurance.
