Mail Carriers

Work Environment

Conditions of work for mail carriers are often strenuous. They must perform their jobs in all types of weather, either on foot carrying a heavy mailbag or pushing a mail cart, or driving in all kinds of traffic and road conditions. For a few hours every day, they work in office buildings, which are usually comfortable. Even when inside, however, carriers must lift heavy bags of mail and be on their feet most of the time.
