Hazardous Waste Management Specialists

Outlook

The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) predicts that employment of hazardous materials removal workers will grow about as fast as the average for all careers through 2024. Those with advanced degrees, specific technical skills and knowledge, and success in past cleanup and remediation projects will have the best opportunities to find work. As with some other highly skilled environmental professions, hazardous waste management is currently suffering from a lack of qualified professionals. The sheer enormity of the hazardous waste problem, with at least 40,000 known sites and more expected to be identified in the near future, ensures that there will be cleanup jobs available as long as funding is available.
