Occupational health and safety experts help to identify, prevent and minimize dangerous situations in a work environment which can lead to accidents causing disabilities, deaths and even long term impacts on the health of workers. They help organizations develop processes that are safer and more efficient.
If you pursue a career in this field, you might design programs to control, eliminate or prevent health problems caused by chemical, physical or biological agents. You might advise organizations about using more ergonomically designed equipment or furniture. You might conduct occupational safety inspections or evaluate how well employers adhere to laws, regulations or policies designed to protect their workers' health and safety.
Job opportunities for occupational health and safety specialists are expected to surge 7 percent from 2012 to 2022. Specialists will be required to work in various industries to make sure that organizations are in compliance with both existing and new regulations.
