Job Description for Cable Splicer

Cable splicers connect cables together, often maintaining and installing cables for telecommunications companies. This work is usually done on call and in any type of weather. The cables that these professionals work with may be high in the air, underground or even underwater. If the cables are high up, cable splicers generally need to utilize elevated work platforms or cherry pickers. They may also climb utility poles to reach the specified area. If underground, cable splicers may need to descend into manholes and sewers to reach the needed area. If the cables are underwater, it is possible that they will work onboard a marine craft. After installing the cables, cable splicers must test them to ensure functionality and ensure the safety of the cables. The cables must be moisture- and fireproof. Aside from installation, cable splicers may also check faulty wiring and maintain installed cables.
