Occupational Health & Safety

Understanding human health risks

Our consulting Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) practice focuses on evaluating chemical, biological, and physical hazards in the workplace and extends to diverse sectors including energy, food and beverage, life sciences, commercial, traditional manufacturing, entertainment, advanced manufacturing, and innovation industries.

If you need to better understand the potential human health risks posed by industrial health hazards, contaminated sites, consumer products, and food additives, our scientists can help—they’ve conducted hundreds of occupational health and safety (OHS) assessments.

With a team of over 70 professionals based throughout the US, our OHS professionals can provide expertise in industrial hygiene, toxicology, epidemiology, microbiology, statistical analysis, and risk assessment. We have multiple certified industrial hygienists, diplomates of the American Board of Toxicology, certified safety professionals, and certified hazardous materials managers. In addition, our ChemRisk team works with over 100 OHS Stantec professionals located across the world.

Let us help you with your technical advisory needs, whether you’re evaluating a workplace or reviewing community health and safety risks. 

Pioneering innovative global OHS services

Our multidisciplinary OHS team delivers industry leading applied scientific risk assessment methodologies to address the complex workplace hazards that can arise from equipment, materials, processes, and human behaviors. We help navigate compliance, legal, and reputational business risks, and we can help you confront the multi-layered issues that arise when humans are exposed to chemical and physical hazards.

Health and safety practices for increased productivity

Supporting employee wellbeing reduces lost time and insurance costs. Our industrial hygienists, safety professionals, toxicologists, and other specialists develop practices that limit your organization’s risks and liabilities in due diligence and compliance work—helping deliver a safe and healthy work environment. We respond to the needs of clients across the globe and support businesses in multiple occupational sectors including food and beverage, manufacturing, construction, e-commerce, and entertainment services.

Biological risk assessment and management

Our team has extensive experience applying human health risk assessments to the complex issues related to a variety of different microorganisms—including bacteria, viruses, yeasts, molds, and other microbial components such as mycotoxins, endotoxins, and glucans. Our team of microbiologists, epidemiologists, toxicologists, industrial hygienists, and public health professionals supports specialty agencies, companies, and organizations specializing in the evaluation, communication, management, and prevention of biological hazards.

Agribusiness, food, and beverage support services

We address consumer product concerns regarding pesticide exposures in agricultural settings, chemical and microbial impurities during processing, chemical leaching from food packaging, and potential consumer exposures to chemical, microbial, and physical hazards from contaminated or adulterated foods, alcohol, drinking water, and dietary supplements. We evaluate exposures in occupational settings and in the general public—and in vulnerable populations such as children and infants, the elderly, and those with compromised immune systems
