Advancing science and policy to reduce health risks where people live, work and play


With its broad and multidisciplinary faculty expertise, the Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences Institute is an international resource that supports basic and clinical research in environmental health sciences and exposure assessment and fosters associated programs in environmental health education and public policy.

Established in 1986, EOHSI’s major objectives are to:

  • Advance understanding of the mechanisms by which environmental and occupational chemical exposures impact human health
  • Identify and measure human environmental and occupational exposures to chemicals
  • Treat populations adversely affected by chemical exposures
  • Develop educational tools describing relative risks of chemical exposures
  • Contribute to public policies related to environmental and occupational chemical risks
  • Offer training programs for environmental health professionals

The Institute serves as an unbiased source of expertise about environmental problems for communities, employers and governments in all areas of occupational and environmental health, toxicology and risk assessment. EOHSI members are active as advisors to international, national, state and local organizations on public health issues.
