The numbers don't add up. ISHN's most recent White Paper survey found job satisfaction among environmental health and safety pros at 37 percent. In large firms (more than 1,000 employees) job satisfaction drops to 28 percent. In comparison, 51 percent of workers, in general, like their jobs.
You'd think that EHS pros have a beef with management or they are disgruntled about how things are run, but this isn't the case. The White Paper survey found that 80 percent of EHS pros are satisfied with management's support and less than 10 percent had complaints about budgets, staff, stress or time to do their job.
