Leveraging science for a healthy society
Some of the most complex challenges faced by our clients are related to the potential impact of their business on human health and the environment. At Ramboll, we have a long history of working on these most challenging and complex issues and have helped define the field of human health and environmental risk assessment. With deep scientific bench strength—including many experts at the top of their fields, across disciplines—we provide science-based support to clients around the world.
Our experts are well regarded in the industry, legal and regulatory communities and have deep experience in critical areas such as REACH ization, COVID-19 response support, emerging chemicals, regulatory support and expert services. Our experience includes litigation, non-litigation and regulatory support and has helped us build long-term client relationships.
HEALTH SCIENCES SERVICES
- Expert services
- Occupational & building health
- Product safety & stewardship
- Risk assessment & community health
- Sciences for regulatory support
Our diverse team of experts is uniquely positioned to leverage experience in product safety and stewardship, occupational and building health, regulatory analysis, and risk assessment and community health to provide the best available science on current and emerging environmental and occupational health issues. Practitioners in toxicology, epidemiology, industrial hygiene and risk assessment make up our team of experts, which includes Certified Industrial hygienists (CIHs), Diplomates, American Board of Toxicology (DABTs), Certified Safety Professionals (CSPs), and licensed mold, asbestos and lead inspectors.
Occupational & building health
Uncertainties about chemical, biological and physical exposures in the workplace and indoor air quality in buildings can affect employee health and wellbeing and increase business risk through possible litigation and reputational damage. Our internationally recognised team of industrial hygienists, toxicologists, epidemiologists and health scientists perform risk assessments, develop practical controls and partner with our clients to implement health, safety and indoor air quality programs.
Product safety & stewardship
Unrecognised and unanticipated exposures from product components (be they intentional ingredients or incidental contaminants) can upend stewardship efforts. Our pioneering scientific approaches to risk assessment have informed and guided responses to product safety concerns and suitable notifications and registrations with governmental agencies for decades.
Risk assessment & community health
Environmental impacts and their implications are complicated, particularly from the perspective of a surrounding community. Our health scientists have expertise in exposure assessment, specialised dose-response evaluations, risk characterisation and risk communication. Our focus on comprehensive evaluations and clear communication lets us explain how environmental conditions can be managed safely. Our risk assessment approaches address multiple stressors and multiple exposure pathways at the facility or community scale. Our health impact assessment approaches integrate information on both chemical and non-chemical stressors.
Sciences for regulatory support
Our regulatory support services provide independent and rigorous evaluations of science and methods used to determine risks associated with products and exposures, and derive exposure limits that are protective of health, even if these materials have not yet been regulated. Our scientists have a thorough understanding of regulatory requirements on almost every continent and can turn to Ramboll experts in related areas to gain additional understanding.
