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