In China, the main features of the new normal are the slowdown of economic growth, the release of market dynamics and the optimization and upgrading of the industrial structure. In this period, primary and secondary industry are facing problems such as massive overcapacity, large amounts of major hazards and severe safety production. With the increasing requirements and expectations for security, the scale and cultivation orientation of the safety engineering specialty cannot satisfy the demands for the development of various industries. Therefore, it is necessary to broaden and extend the cultivation orientation of the safety engineering specialty. This paper discusses the developing trends, the talent demand, and the construction and development of the safety engineering specialty. Then, it analyzes the talent demand and cultivation of safety engineers in the new normal. It is suggested that two types of safety engineering talent—academic and applied—should be cultivated. Concerted effort should be devoted to establishing a new mechanism of school-enterprise cooperation. All the above efforts may provide strong support for safety production in China.
