An analysis of government job data by the Associated General Contractors of America reveals that the industry’s unemployment
rate of 4.5% is the lowest in 11 years. Conversely, the average hourly wage for construction—$29.06—is up 2.3% from last year
and nearly 10% more than the average private-sector job. Did you know that the average CHST salary is over $85,000 a year?
Having a career in construction is very rewarding and having the CHST certification to back your name exemplifies enhanced
professional credibility in the industry. This certification focuses on construction safety management principles and practice and
does not require a college degree.
The CHST certification is great for professionals who are interested in pursuing a lasting career in construction or seeking
personal growth as a safety and health specialist.
