An Automotive Glass Technician is a person who removes, installs, repairs and generally services all types of stationary and moveable glass in motor vehicles and associated equipment.
Automotive glass, especially the windshield, is designed with safety in mind in case of a collision. The windshield is manufactured from two panes of specially tempered glass with a thin layer of transparent plastic between them. This construction allows the glass to "give" in the event that a part of your body hits the windshield during the collision, and prevents the glass from shattering, which could cause lacerations, blinding and other harm to passengers of the car. The other fixed windows designed and tempered so that if they break during a collision, they shatter in such a way that there are no large pointed glass pieces.
The professional Automotive Glass Technician knows how to install the glass in a car so that it will function optimally during a collision. Without the proper experience, knowledge and tools, automotive glass installed by an improperly trained worker could lead to additional harm if an accident should ever occur.
Due to the physical nature of these trades, workers in this occupational group should be in good physical condition and have manual dexterity.
