Environmental Medicine


Environmental Medicine is a medical subspecialty that primarily uses epidemiology and toxicology to identify, prevent and treat harmful human health effects that occur as a result of exposure to environmental hazards such as chemicals, microbes (bacteria, fungi, viruses), and physical agents (radiation, noise, light, heat, cold).


An environmental medical specialist can help identify causes of the injuries and illnesses of which workers or plaintiffs are complaining and can rule out erroneous theories. This can serve to focus environmental testing, assist legal actions, and add factual content to regulatory negotiations by determining what, if any, cause-effect relationships exist between the exposure and injury.


Through our medical staff, ERSI can provide the full spectrum of Environmental and Occupational Medicine expertise ranging from the environmental medical assessments to the effective risk communication to workers and communities.
