Industrial hygienists are being compensated more for their work than they were five years ago, according to new data released by the American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA). 

A 2013 AIHA survey, conducted among IH professionals to determine prevailing annual salary and total compensation levels, indicates that the average salary increased from $94,947 in 2008 to $105,166 in 2013.

“These survey results are extremely encouraging to our members and to the IH profession,” said AIHA President Barbara J. Dawson, CIH, CSP. “IH is a rewarding career choice, with tremendous growth and opportunity, particularly for young professionals pursuing careers in occupational and environmental health and safety.”
