Career Guide to the Safety Profession

The purpose of this Guide is to provide indepth information about the safety profession that should help students considering a career in this challenging and rewarding field.
Achieving a rewarding and successful career in safety is strongly related to education and certification. In a 2004 BCSP salary survey of Certified Safety Professionals 22% of those holding the Certified Safety Professional (CSP®) certification earned over $100,000 per year. The average pay was about $84,245 per year with 53% of the respondents having advanced degrees. An ASSE Compensation Study conducted in 2003 revealed that those holding the CSP credential earn about $17,000 more per year than their non-certified peers.
The Career Guide to the Safety Profession contains a wealth of information about career options available in the safety profession and the educational preparation typically required. We hope that this vital information guides your steps as you consider a rewarding career as a safety professional.
"The Career Guide to the Safety Profession is a great resource for those who want to make a real difference in safety in the United States and around the World. The guide provides an excellent overview of the challenging careers available to safety professionals. It also profiles some successful safety professionals now employed who are making important contributions in both the public and private sectors."

What is the BOK?

The purpose of this website is to introduce subject areas that will eventually be part of the Body of Knowledge, and to gather feedback on the future direction, and ongoing assessment of what needs to be completed.
