Occupational Safety and Health Workers

Work Environment

Most occupational safety and health workers are based in offices but spend much of their time at work sites, inspecting safety hazards, talking to workers, or taking samples of such things as air, dust, or water. They may travel a great deal, depending on their job specialty and location. For example, safety engineers who work exclusively at one plant may travel only to an occasional seminar or conference, while insurance consultants will spend about half of their time away from the office inspecting work sites.
