Our Expertise

Multidisciplinary expertise in hazard assessment, exposure, toxicology, occupational hygiene, material characterisation and risk assessment to provide independent, authoritative consultancy on risk and safety.

Our research focuses on:

  • Occupational and consumer exposure assessment (measurement & modelling);
  • Hazard and toxicity assessment (laboratory testing & computational methods);
  • Risk assessment and risk management;
  • Biosensor development;
  • Risk governance;
  • Databases. 

We have provided independent expertise on the development of frameworks for the human health risk assessment of nanomaterials and have built an international research reputation in the field of nanosafety.

We are an invited expert on ISO Technical Committee 229 (Nanotechnologies) and are represented on OECD WPMN working groups and British Standards Institute committees, as well as being an active member of the EU-US nanoEHS Communities of Research and the EU Nano-Safety Cluster.

Our experts are recognised internationally as leading thinkers in their subject areas. In many cases, our people have made it their life’s work to uphold our values, and that’s an essential part of how we deliver our mission of providing a healthy and sustainable world.
