Because of the nature of their jobs, electro-mechanical technicians can work in both an office setting as well as in a factory or other production site. They often work closely with mechanical and electrical engineers, but they also spend time putting together equipment. Since they spend so much of their time working with machinery and equipment, electro-mechanical technicians might come in contact with hazardous or toxic materials or equipment. As long as the proper gear is worn and proper procedures are followed, hazardous incidents are rare.
Electro-mechanical technicians tend to work regular business hours. However if there are larger repairs that need to be made, they might be require to work overtime.
