This EHSCareers Salary Survey was distributed & collected between September 2017 and January 2018 to the environmental, health & safety professionals in our EHSCareers network. The actual survey consists of 13 questions about the experience, education, certifications, scope of responsibilities, salary and total compensation of individual EHS professionals. The response was outstanding as 6,446 EHS professionals completed the survey. Most of the respondents are based in North America and they work for a wide variety of public & private companies. They are full-time EHS practitioners with varying scopes of responsibilities.
While there are other sources that conduct EHS salary surveys that provide some good data & insight, our objective was to provide survey results that facilitate more specific peer-to-peer comparisons. We believe the results compiled will be a valuable tool for HR & talent acquisition professionals, EHS department heads, search firms, and the entire community of EHS professionals that use our career site.
For employers, it will assist in determining if you are offering competitive salaries for the EHS openings you are currently looking to fill. It will also allow you to benchmark salaries as you develop future staffing strategies to compete for top EHS talent.
For EHS professionals, it will help determine if you are being paid competitively compared to your peers. It can be used to aid you in salary negotiations and provide insight into your earnings potential as you advance in your EHS career.
