Similar to carpet installers, floor layers lay flooring in homes, restaurants and other buildings. While their work is not as dangerous as other construction work, there is still a higher rate of injury than most careers as many power tools are used and there is a good amount of kneeling involved in the work. Other than a high school diploma or GED, floor layers do not usually need any formal training or education to be hired. Most floor layers learn their trade in the first few months of being employed, though they will sometimes have to pass an exam before being employed officially.
