Skills

Data on the critical and distinctive skills necessary for those working in the Industrial Safety Technology field from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Industrial Safety Technology majors need many skills, but most especially Reading Comprehension. The revealed comparative advantage (RCA) shows that Industrial Safety Technology majors need more than the average amount of Equipment Maintenance, Repairing, Equipment Selection, Installation, Operation and Control, Troubleshooting, Programming, Quality Control Analysis, Operation Monitoring, Science, Technology Design, Mathematics, Management of Material Resources, Monitoring, Learning Strategies, Systems Evaluation, Reading Comprehension, Systems Analysis, Writing, Critical Thinking, Complex Problem Solving, Instructing, Active Listening, Speaking, Active Learning, Time Management, Judgment and Decision Making, Coordination, Management of Personnel Resources, Persuasion, Service Orientation, Negotiation, Management of Financial Resources, Social Perceptiveness, and Operations Analysis.

These two visualizations, one a radial chart and one a bar chart, show the same information, a rating of how necessary the following skills are for Industrial Safety Technology majors. Toggle between "value" and "RCA" to see the absolute rating of that skill (value) and the revealed comparative advantage (RCA), or how much greater or lesser that skill's rating is than the average. The longer the bar or the closer the line comes to the circumference of the circle, the more important that skill is. The importance of Equipment Maintenance is very distinctive for majors, but the Reading Comprehension, Critical Thinking, Active Listening, Monitoring, Speaking, Writing, Science, Operation Monitoring, Mathematics, Quality Control Analysis, Complex Problem Solving, Judgment and Decision Making, Operation and Control, Active Learning, Time Management, Coordination, Learning Strategies, Systems Analysis, Systems Evaluation, Instructing, Social Perceptiveness, Troubleshooting, Persuasion, Equipment Selection, Equipment Maintenance, Service Orientation, Management of Personnel Resources, Repairing, Negotiation, Programming, Management of Material Resources, Technology Design, Management of Financial Resources, Operations Analysis, and Installation are the three most important skills for people in the field.
