Safety profession is hot, and the pay is good!

Safety and health engineering got favorable mention in a recent CareerBuilder article titled “7 Jobs that Pay $75,000 a Year.” The story was based on a survey of U.S. workers in which about half said they would feel successful earning a salary of $70,000 a year or more.

CareerBuilder, an online jobsite, responded with a list of seven fast-growing jobs that pay around $75,000 annually. According to the article, health and safety engineers “develop systems and procedures that prevent sickness or injury and keep property from being damaged.” Job growth in the field was estimated at around 13 percent between 2010 and 2020.

The mention was well received by the American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE). President Richard A. Pollock said that not only has demand increased, but the value of ESH professionals is also on the rise.
