Commments:
The one hundred “Drilling/Construction/Equipment Personnel” were not counted in determining the total of environmental professionals, although many of these workers are employed in environment-related enterprises. The job title “Health Physicist” refers to medical radiation specialists who, among other things, conduct radiological surveys and monitor radiation danger to workers and the community. The Archaeology Department employs mostly archaeologists who were not considered environmental professionals for the purposes of this survey.
