Default Salary for Environmental Control Officer (ECO)?

Hi All,

I am going to apply for a role as an Environmental Control Officer in the construction industry, 30 years old this year with an NTU degree in Mechanical Engineering.

2 years of experience as a manufacturing engineer in the manufacturing industry for my 1st job, followed by 2 years in NEA as a Environment Executive. Took up a course in ECO and got my certification and registered with NEA as an ECO.

How much is the basic salary range that I can ask for an ECO with regards to my experience? I am aware that a WSH officer can command $5-7k a month but wondering if ECO could be around the same or much lesser?

hi i am same age as you, grad in 2007 ntu(mech).

Just some question abt NEA,
what does Environment Executive do? >>tough job or easy job but boring?
How is the annual increment/promotion increment in NEA, how many %
How much is the annual package in NEA, got 16 mth (inclusive AWS)?

Are you sure WHS Officer got 7k? Unless its department head in a big company, otherwise I never see b4 normal WHS Officer can hit 7k Some who have specialist certification in niche areas like chemical storage, offshore exploration etc maybe, but just normal environment not possible lar.

For someone quite new to construction industry safety & environment related positions should be about 3.5 to 3.8k bah. Some of the older more experience ones can reach 4k+.

Stick to your job in NEA if you are interested in environmental work.

ECO is just a supervisor level job in charge of tying up loose ends at a construction site. Things like noise complaints, rubbish clearing, mosquito breeding, toilets, worker's hygiene. No career progression and your pay is subject to pressure from FTs who are ever willing to take lower pay than you. Your work also won't be appreciated and you are viewed as a cost liability to your company who would rather not have you around if not for HDB and LTA's requirements.

Fresh without exp. about 3k. Experienced at most 4.5k. 6 day work week.

I have never heard of local U engineering grad working as ECO. Is the economy that bad?

7k is common in certain industries. But I always tell people I earn less. So take what you hear with a pinch of salt.
