Salary Survey 2020

Safety + Health: November 2020 Article

The annual Safety+Health Salary Survey is different this year. That’s because we’ve partnered with the Board of Certified Safety Professionals to bring you more – and more accurate* – information about how you compare with your fellow EHS pros on compensation and benefits.

On behalf of S+H and BCSP, Readex Research selected a sample of 61,500 EHS pros from two lists of National Safety Council members and active BCSP certification holders. An email was sent on April 22, and 9,225 recipients responded for a 15% response rate.

Thanks to everyone who responded to the survey. Ready to see how your salary stacks up? Turn the page…

*As part of this year’s partnership with BCSP, the Safety+Health Salary Survey has been thoroughly updated and expanded. Because of changes to question wording and response options, this year’s salary survey results are not comparable to previous years’ results

Our Thoughts

As a safety professional, I find this report very interesting.  The typical safety professional (with certifications) is 47 years old and has been in the industry 15 years.  Just 1 in 5 are female, which I think is too low, but hopefully we’ll see that grow over the years.  What I find most interesting about this report is that 37% of EHS functions still fall under HR or Production.  I don’t understand this…If Human Resources, Production, Purchasing, Sales, etc. are so important to a company that they create a department with managers, than shouldn’t safety?
