SH&E Industry 2015 Salary Survey, Board of Certified Safety Professionals (BCSP)

The purpose of this research project was to better understand compensation trends among Safety, Health, and Environmental (SH&E) professionals. Since 2008, the Board of Certified Safety Professionals (BCSP) has measured and reported salary and employment trend data as a service to its certificants and SH&E professionals. In 2015, BCSP hoped to develop a more complete SH&E employment trend and salary picture by inviting five partners to participate in the data collection process. Partners: ASSE - American Society of Safety Engineers; ABIH - American Board of Industrial Hygiene; AHMP - Alliance of Hazardous Materials Professionals; AIHA - American Industrial Hygiene Association; and IHMM - Institute of Hazardous Materials Management.


ASSE Safety Salary Survey - 2015, American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE)

A 2015 American Society of Safety Engineers survey of more than 9,000 occupational safety and health professionals reveals they earn an annual base salary on average of $98,000, an increase of $8,000 since the survey was taken two years ago. The ASSE survey results are part of an expansive collaboration with the American Board of Industrial Hygiene (ABIH), Alliance of Hazardous Materials Professionals (AHMP), American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA), Board of Certified Safety Professionals (BCSP) and Institute of Hazardous Materials Management (IHMM).

NIOSH Center for Workers’ Compensation Studies , Steve Wurzelbacher

The NIOSH Center for Workers’ Compensation Studies (CWCS) is making progress to support the use of workers’ compensation (WC) data and systems to improve workplace safety and health. Recently, CWCS announced funding support for new state trending of WC data and has continued work with the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC) on claims analyses and intervention effectiveness studies. Over the past year, the center has held several webinars on a number of topics ranging from WC data dashboards to opioid abuse prevention, and it continues to seek new partners and input for future research.


Steering Toward Effective Business Auto Loss Control, Paul Ferrell

According to the International Organization for Standardization’s (ISO) Engineering and Safety Service (E&S) report CV-15-08, “The evaluation of a commercial auto exposure for a motor carrier is uniquely different from that of other insurance exposures.” This is true for a number of reasons. Perhaps the most pertinent of which is that the job site where a safety or loss control professional could make direct observation of conditions and performance is unique to each employee- driver, and is literally on the move daily. The dynamic exposure presented by other drivers on the highway is highly unpredictable and seemingly uncontrollable.


Process Safety vs. Personal Safety, Jim Whiting, Ken Horrigan & Vanessa Elliott

Process safety and personal safety need not be treated as entirely separated domains of safety risk management. Although specific consequences and controls may vary enough to identify and label them as various categories of risk, the risk management systems approach needs to be universal, consistent and integrated. Positive arguments for an integrated SMS are presented.

Four Ways Leaders Can Demonstrate Commitment to Safety, Zach Knoop

A robust safety system will have clearly defined and integrated safety activities for all levels of the organization that are regularly measured and incorporated into performance evaluations, similar to other business functions. This takes time and effort to establish. Leaders can demonstrate their visible commitment to safety in various, simple ways.


The Path to Risk Management, Caroline McDonald

Risk management has been flying under the radar for years, and those in the profession often had not originally planned to be there. But that may be changing as risk management education programs gain a foothold. Driven by a tough job market for college graduates in the wake of a slowly turning financial crisis, students are increasingly gravitating to fields where jobs are available upon graduation and a viable career path is apparent.


What is the BOK?

The Body of Knowledge project is dedicated to creating a living reference that represents the collective knowledge of the Safety, Health and Environmental profession. While the preliminary work has begun, there is still more to do. 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.
