Current Demand for Engineers with Occupational Safety and Health Training.
Environmental Health, School of Public Health, University of Minnesota - Minneapolis, Minnesota, 1981 Jun:18 pages
The demand for engineers with occupational safety and hygiene training was surveyed. Employment advertisements in professional journals were reviewed for engineering positions which required or indicated a preference for safety and health training. A questionnaire on preferred engineer training was sent to 160 industrial companies in the Midwest. Ten industrial personnel recruiters also were interviewed. None of the engineer employment advertisements mentioned safety and health training. All of the recruiters indicated that safety and health training would be desirable in engineering job candidates. Most questionnaire respondents indicated that their company was not seeking an engineer with health and safety training, however such training was considered to be an asset. The author concludes that some demand does exist for engineers with occupational safety and health training. Educational engineering programs should provide some type of safety and health training.
