Welcome to Adelaide Exposure Science and Health
Adelaide Exposure Science and Health is at the forefront of occupational and environmental health practice in Australia. We are recognised nationally and internationally as leaders in academic research, consulting and specialist training in the field.
Adelaide Exposure Science and Health offers a diverse range of research, field-based consulting, laboratory, and education and training services to industry, government and the community. We are staffed by experienced occupational hygienists, consultants and research staff with wide ranging expertise across scientific disciplines.
Our specialised facility is cutting edge, but our core strength lies within the diversity of our people. Our staff are exceptional in their ability to apply many years of experience in the field of exposure science and health to current and topical issues in occupational and environmental settings. We have a track record of both delivering on outcomes for clients and leading collaborative research programs with national and international government agencies and industry partners. No matter where you are in the world, we can assist you with consultations, training, laboratory services or research.
