Our Project Experience

Human Health Risk Assessment

Human Health Risk Assessment

Our human health risk assessments focus on the overall risk strategy. We ensure that the solution meets your expectations, while at the same time anticipating the challenges that may arise throughout the process. An established rapport with regulatory risk-assessment groups allows for transparent communication and a constructive approach that minimizes unnecessary iterations and enables realistic risk reduction. It’s a proactive approach to the use and transfer of innovative risk-based strategies.

Ecological Risk Assessment

Ecological Risk Assessment

Our assessments reflect representative exposure pathways and site-specific conditions that influence the bioavailability, mobility and toxicity of constituents. We have designed investigations to evaluate the environmental fate of persistent, bioaccumulative and toxic (PBT) chemicals and to assess risks at multiple trophic levels. We’ve worked on multiple, large-scale mercury-impacted sites investigating the fate, transport and risks associated with mercury in aquatic and terrestrial habitats.

Emerging Contaminants

Emerging Contaminants

Through our expertise in toxicology and risk assessment, we can advise you on the rapid advancements in the science relating to the fate, transport and toxicity of emerging contaminants. Likewise, our expertise in regulatory compliance keeps you up-to-date on evolving state and federal regulations that may impact your business. Our technical and regulatory expertise in emerging contaminants helps you develop effective risk-management strategies and remain compliant with the many regulations.

Persistent, Bioaccumulative, and Toxic Chemicals

Persistent, Bioaccumulative, and Toxic Chemicals

EHS Support has designed investigations to evaluate the environmental fate of PBT chemicals and to assess human health and ecological risks based on the site-specific bioavailability, toxicity and bioaccumulation/biomagnification of PBT chemicals within food webs. This includes multiple, large-scale mercury-impacted sites, where we’ve investigated the fate, transport and human health and ecological risks of mercury in aquatic and terrestrial environments.

Expert Witness

Expert Witness

Defining clearly the relationships between dose and its effects on human health is core to assessment of toxicology and risk. EHS Support’s litigation support team provides credible expert studies and effective expert testimony. Our experts have a breadth of experience working and specialising in product registration and emerging chemicals. Whether its toxicology, human health, food-chain assessments or assessments of specific ecological receptors, we have the resources you need.

Product Stewardship

Product Stewardship

Sound product stewardship minimizes the health, safety, environmental and social impacts of a product and its packaging throughout all lifecycle stages, while ensuring benefits to the business. We can support product development from ideation, ensure compliance with regulatory requirements, ensure customer expectations are met, defend products by assessing health and environmental effects and meet societal expectations for the responsible distribution of products for use as intended.
