Editor’s Note: A good partnership

Safety+Health and the Board of Certified Safety Professionals have had a good partnership for many years.

BCSP uses S+H editorial content as part of its recertPRO online recertification program. By reading S+H and completing BCSP’s quizzes, you can earn recertification points toward several certifications. (For more information, visit recertpro.com.)

We’re pleased to be part of the program. So when BCSP approached us late last year and asked if we’d like to team up on a salary survey for 2020, we jumped at the chance to join forces, compare survey questions to see where we had overlap and where we could expand, and reach out to a larger audience to collect data that’s even more accurate.

The survey was sent out to more than 61,000 environmental, health and safety pros, and we’re grateful to everyone who took the time to respond. We appreciate you.

Big thanks go to Lisa Spencer at BCSP, who played a major role in making the process go smoothly. And even though this year’s survey was a joint effort, S+H Senior Graphic Designer Mike Sharkey and Web Content Editor Amy Bellinger worked as hard as ever to get the data presented in print and online.

As always, we’re indebted to National Safety Council Statistics Manager Ken Kolosh, who patiently answers our many questions and whose guidance gives us confidence that we’re presenting the charts the right way.

We hope you find the survey results helpful. If you have suggestions about what we can do to make next year’s survey even better, don’t hesitate to get in touch.
