How much you earn compared to other OHS people can be placed in some kind of context following the results of this year's Safeguard salary survey, whose 255 respondents had a median base income (not including allowances) of $74,630, a little higher than last year's figure of $72,317.

However this overall figure disguises a number of differences based on role and gender. Least well remunerated were those respondents who worked in enforcement, whose median base income was $64,170. (There were only eight such respondents, so that figure should be treated with caution.) Occupational health nurses - numbering 29 respondents - had a median of $69,170.

The highest incomes were reported by the large majority - 184 of them - who ticked the "health and safety practitioner" box: their median base income was $76,970. When this group is examined by gender, however, a different story emerges: the 106 men earned a median of $80,310 while the 78 women earned only $69,750.

A full anonymised dataset - with all text responses stripped off - is available for $45 + GST for those who wish to drill a little deeper. Orders to or phone 0800 10 60 60.
