Job Outlook for Graduates
Employment of occupational health and safety technicians is expected to increase 13 percent during the 2010-20 decade, faster than the average for all occupations, reflecting a balance of continuing public demand for a safe and healthy work environment against the desire for fewer government regul ations. Median annual wages of occupational health and safety technicians were $45,330 in May 2010. The lowest 10 percent earned less than $27,580, and the top 10 percent earned more than $72,220.
