The Safety Institute of Australia Ltd (SIA) is proud to support the 2010/2011 SafeSearch Health Safety & Environment Remuneration Survey for the fifth year. We congratulate Julie Honore FSIA (Hon), FAHRI, MLM (Dist) and her talented team at SafeSearch, a SIA Corporate Partner, for this valuable and industry-driven initiative.
SafeSearch and EnviroSearchGlobal have released their 2011 annual salary survey findings.
The survey includes data from over 60 Australian companies, primarily from the ASX 200, and covers a diverse range of industries including energy, resources, construction, manufacturing, industrial and retail.
Salaries increase more than double CPI
Average salaries of health and safety professionals leap an average 9.6 per cent according to survey results released.
The 2011 SafeSearch annual salary survey showed a significant turnaround in salary packages in health and safety, with top levels in safety earning an average of $271K.
Managing Director of SafeSearch, a specialist search and recruitment business, Julie Honore says, one thing's for sure, the GFC is certainly over for the HSE community.
For the first time in five years, environmental salaries have overtaken that of safety professionals, survey results have revealed.
The 2011 SafeSearch and EnviroSearchGlobal annual salary survey, found an enormous 25 per cent increase across the board for environmental roles.
The survey reflects the significant increase in salaries for heads of environment, leaping from $194K to $289K.
"This brings environmental salaries in Australia in line with worldwide salary rises for this sector, according to a recent global report that showed salaries in Australasia rose by 24 per cent," said Ms Honore.
Employers are demanding higher formal qualifications for health, safety and environment professionals, according to a survey released.
"This is a clear message to our universities and educators, many of whom still do not include relevant health and safety courses on their core curriculum," says Julie Honore, managing director SafeSearch.
