The primary focus of a “Health & Safety Professional” is the prevention of incidents and injuries that may cause injuries or illness to people, or damage to property / equipment, or the environment.
Congress created the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) in 1970 to assure safe and healthful working conditions for employees by setting and enforcing standards as well as providing training, outreach, education and assistance to organizations.
Safety professionals work alongside management to create and enforce policies that ensure compliance of OSHA regulations designed to create a safer and healthier workplace for its employees.
While OSHA remains the governmental regulatory agency, the responsibility of occupational safety and health of employees has evolved into an integral part of corporate culture.
Beyond the inherent dangers involved with skilled labor and construction, organizations are now recognizing the importance of protecting workers against, sickness, disease and other health hazards, including those brought on with the advent of new technologies.
Because of this, occupational safety and health professionals are needed within a variety industries including construction, healthcare, oil and gas, chemical plants, Mining & Metals, Power Plants, Coal Ash (CCR) and much more.
The successful “Safety Professional” of the 21st Century is employs a variety of methods, techniques and principles drawn from engineering, education, psychology, physiology, enforcement, hygiene, health, physics, and management, what is now called “Safety Science” to help prevent accidents, incidents, injuries and other events that could cause harm to people, property or the environment.
A number of surveys report that job satisfaction in the safety field is high. Typically, 90% of respondents say they are “satisfied” or “very satisfied” with their careers in safety. The reasons often include work differing each day and being able to contribute to the welfare of others.
A career as a “Health & Safety Professional” can also prove to be very financially rewarding. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the 2015 median pay for occupational safety and health specialists was approximately $70,210 annually.
