OHS managers out-earn bosses

Project work is pushing the salaries of OHS managers above those of their bosses, says the latest safesearch remuneration survey.

“OHS managers are now earning an average of $6,843 more than senior city-based national managers,” the survey says. Last year they were earning 33% less.

The turnaround is because more OHS managers working in project roles have been included in this year’s survey and many of them are based in remote locations.

The survey also found “project roles are increasingly demanding with strict timeframes requiring long hours of work often in complex environments”.

“In order to earn their premium we are seeing increased demand for strong communication skills, an ability to respond to complex circumstances and increasingly demanding workloads, alongside traditional project and technical experience,” said Julie Honore, managing director of safesearch, in a media statement.

Safesearch says it surveyed more than 1000 OHS individuals at 116 mainly ASX 200 companies.
