Industrial Safety Specialists (Industrial engineers) determine the most effective ways to use the basic factors of production - people, machines, materials, information, and energy - to make а product or to provide a service. An Industrial Safety Specialist´s tasks may include investigating and reporting on workplace accidents, measuring biological or chemical contaminants, assessing physical hazards and conducting investigations of local, state and federal occupational health and safety violations. They are more concerned with increasing productivity through the management of people, methods of business organization, and technology than are engineers in other specialties, who generally work more with products or processes.
Although most industrial engineers work in manufacturing industries, they may also work in consulting services, healthcare, and communications.
To solve organizational, production, and related problems most efficiently, industrial engineers carefully study the product and its requirements, use mathematical methods such as operations research to meet those requirements, and design manufacturing and information systems. They develop management control systems to aid in financial planning and cost analysis and design production planning and control systems to coordinate activities and ensure product quality.
Industrial Safety Specialists need great observation and reporting skills. They need to demonstrate tact and diplomacy in dealing with management, other employees and external oversight agencies. Solid computer and communication skills are also essential for success in the field.
