The greatest employment opportunity for safety professionals at the present time is with the Department of Labor for enforcement of the Williams-Steiger Act, which establishes the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). As part of a federal study of job possibilities for displaced aerospace and defense technical professionals, it was found that approximately 1,500 jobs will become available as OSHA completes its staffing. As enforcement of this new law becomes widespread, increasing opportunities for safety professionals in private industry should arise, resulting in some additional job opportunities for unemployed aerospace and defense technical professionals.
