About the 2015 SH&E Industry Salary Survey & Calculator


For this study, six partners participated in the data collection process by providing their membership or certificant lists to Readex Research:

ASSE - American Society of Safety Engineers

ABIH - American Board of Industrial Hygiene

AHMP - Alliance of Hazardous Materials Professionals

AIHA - American Industrial Hygiene Association

BCSP - Board of Certified Safety Professionals

IHMM - Institute of Hazardous Materials Management

This calculator is based on a salary survey conducted and reported in 2015 by Readex Research, an independent company. The functionality of this web site was also developed by Readex.

Sample Composition & Data Collection

The survey sample was selected by Readex from lists of emailable contacts provided by each of the six partnering organizations. 

For the data collection, Readex emailed the sample in the name of an officer from the respective partner list after de-duplication. Data was collected from March 26 to April 7, 2015, and the survey was closed for tabulation with 9,258 responses.

About This Calculator

This salary calculator includes data from all respondents who indicated they were employed full time and provided compensation information as of January 1, 2015. 

By checking boxes on the Salary Calculator page, the user can build a nearly infinite number of different queries on this data — learning typical compensation for those holding a speicifc license/credential in California, for instance.  Ranges can be built up (e.g., those in California OR Nevada) by checking more than one box for a given variable.  Clicking INCLUDE ALL removes all filters for that variable.

As selections are made, the page refreshes and shows five statistics for both the user's selected situation and for all respondents (for comparison) on two measures: base annual salary, and other compensation (see Definitions). 

Note that results are not displayed if fewer than 10 cases meet the selection criteria — when this happens, revise your selections by checking more boxes or INCLUDE ALL for variables of interest.
