Industrial Safety and Health Technicians
According to the Occupational Outlook Handbook, employment for industrial safety and health technicians is expected to grow faster than the average for all occupations through 2018. 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, which provide more job stability than private industries. More technicians will also be needed to help address technological advances in safety equipment and threats, and changing regulations.
