Work Across Disciplines Common in Occupational Safety and Health

Many occupational safety and health professionals perform tasks
outside of their main area of expertise, according to a recent survey on their
continuing education needs published in the American Journal of Industrial

Nearly two thirds of respondents reported additional responsibilities in other
occupational safety and health-related areas, such as workplace design, or
ergonomics, and wellness. Survey respondents expressed the greatest interest in
continuing education related to injury prevention, occupational stress, exposure
assessment, and safety culture. These survey findings show that interdisciplinary
work or work across disciplines continues to grow in occupational safety and
health and underscore the need for cross-training in the field.
