Industrial Safety and Health Technicians

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, employment for industrial safety and health technicians is expected to grow faster than the average for all occupations through 2024. Growth will be driven by the general public's demand for healthy and safe work environments. Safety professionals will also be needed to replace those who retire or leave jobs for other opportunities. Many health and safety professionals work for federal, state, and local governments. More technicians will also be needed to help address technological advances in safety equipment and threats, and changing regulations. Job opportunities are expected to grow much faster than the average in the health care industry and at professional, scientific, and technical services firms—which combined employ 23 percent of all industrial safety and health technicians.
