Lineworker

A lineworker (lineman (American English), linesman (British English), powerline technician (PLT), or powerline worker) is a tradesperson who constructs and maintains electric power transmission, telecommunications lines (cable, internet and phone) and distribution lines.

A lineworker generally does outdoor installation and maintenance jobs. Those who install and maintain electrical wiring inside buildings are electricians.
