Even with workplace regulations to protect workers, many jobs carry an element of risk. Industrial Safety and Health Engineers are responsible for using engineering tools and technology to make places that are dangerous to work at… as safe as possible. These engineers promote worksite and product safety to avoid hazards from a variety of sources— chemical, physical, biological, and even psychological. They are always on the lookout for new ways to predict and prevent hazardous conditions and, when they do occur, control them with safety measures. Industrial safety and health engineers work with other public health and safety workers to coordinate efforts, often teaming up to investigate industrial accidents and injuries, find their cause, and prevent future problems. While they spend time in the office to plan new and improved safety programs, these engineers also travel to worksites to evaluate machinery and environments and to train workers in safety and emergency procedures. Many of these positions require a four-year college degree in engineering, along with work- related experience. For these engineers, maintaining safer, healthier workplaces keeps American industry… industrious.
What they do:
Plan, implement, and coordinate safety programs, requiring application of engineering principles and technology, to prevent or correct unsafe environmental working conditions.
On the job, you would:
Investigate industrial accidents, injuries, or occupational diseases to determine causes and preventive measures.
Inspect facilities, machinery, and safety equipment to identify and correct potential hazards, and to ensure safety regulation compliance.
Conduct or coordinate worker training in areas such as safety laws and regulations, hazardous condition monitoring, and use of safety equipment.
