No matter where people work, travel, live or play, conditions exist that can result in personal injury or illness. And wherever the possibility of personal injury or illness exists, they will find safety professionals dedicated to preventing human suffering and related losses. Their specific roles and activities vary widely, depending on their education, experience and the types of organizations for whom they work.

Successful safety professionals are effective communicators with strong "people skills." Most people in this profession characteristically possess the desire to help and work with others. The safety professional faces new challenges almost daily. The satisfaction of knowing that people have been protected because harmful accidents and other incidents have been prevented is just one of the many rewards associated with professional safety practice or "what safety professionals do." The safety field is so diverse it attracts people who enjoy technical subjects as well as those who enjoy working with people. The safety field is so complex; it's hard to be bored!
