Mississauga, ON. November 5, 2015 — A major report from the Board of Canadian Registered Safety Professionals (BCRSP) released today reveals that more than 90% of CRSP respondents are pleased with their career in occupational health and safety.

The Salary Survey report, which is now available online, is conducted every second year and highlights key demographic and employment variables of CRSPs from across Canada, who work in various sectors.

In total the report was sent out to 4490 CRSPs and 1673 certificants completed the survey, the majority of respondents were from Alberta and Ontario. The report is broken down by region, age, duties, educational background and years of experience; giving a realistic glimpse into the working conditions of CRSPs.

The data was summarized by Assessment Strategies Inc. (ASI) and the findings serve as a valuable tool for CRSPs, human resource departments, senior managers and the public in terms of assessing employment trends/settings and salary comparisons within the industry.

The report also reveals that over 50% of CRSP respondents reported salaries over 100,000 per year. Like many careers, salaries generally increased with level of experience.  Salaries tended to be higher in the petroleum and construction sectors, while respondents in the government sector reported some of the lowest salaries.  Certificants reported that the designation itself is a requirement for a large number or occupational health and safety positions and an asset to companies in all sectors.

Overall the results were consistent with previous surveys and any noteworthy changes were documented and highlighted within the report.  To view the report in its entirety visit:
