Industrial Safety Technicians Help Keep the Workplace Safe

Do you enjoy being in a variety of work environments, from of offices to factories, with the opportunity for local or regional travel?

Careers as industrial or occupational safety technicians give you these kinds of benefits while you help make workplaces safer for employees.

Industrial or occupational safety technicians work with health and safety specialists to conduct tests and measure hazards to help prevent harm to workers, property, the environment and the general public. You examine the workplace for environmental or physical factors that could affect employee health, safety and performance.

You may also assist in conducting employee safety and training programs that cover a wide range of topics, like how to use equipment correctly or how to respond in an emergency.

To position yourself for a career in this field – that according to the U.S. Department of Labor will see a steady 10 percent job growth through 2026 – you can earn an associate of technical studies in industrial safety technology/ technician from Lorain County Community College.

This degree prepares you work with engineers in implementing and enforcing industrial safety hazards. LCCC also offers a short-term technical certificate and a one-year technical certificate in this field, which can get you ready for work quickly. As you progress in your career you may find it desireable to earn a bachelor’s degree in occupational safety. LCCC’s programs prepare you for that step as well.

LEARN MORE at an info session at 6 p.m., Tuesday, Jan. 9 at the Richard Desich Sales Institute. For more information, call Chrissy Cooney at (440) 366-4325 or email her at ccooney1@lorainccc.edu.
