Environment, Health and Safety Group

Environment, Health and Safety

The Environment, Health and Safety Group aims to provide a forum for the discussion and sharing of information on environmental and health issues relevant to the chemical and allied industries, public authorities, academics and other interested parties. The Group was formed in late 2012 following the merger of the Environment Group and the Health and Safety Group.


The Group also aims to enhance professional awareness on environmental, health and safety matters.

  • The Group has now joined with other SCI Groups in the Agriculture, Horticulture and Food sectors to form an Agri-Food Hub.

Our interests
The Group has particular interests in:

  • Legislation and standardisation
  • Air, land and water pollution assessment and control
  • Environmental impact assessment and management
  • Effects of hazardous materials on the environment
  • 'Clean', low-carbon technology
  • Waste and water management
  • The interaction between industry and the community
  • Sustainability issues

On the international front, the Group has been actively involved in the derivation of the ISO 14000 environmental standards. Members of the Group are also noted for keeping abreast of the latest developments in legislation, particularly European Union legislation.

The Group regularly holds joint meetings with other like-minded organisations, particularly the Royal Society of Chemistry's Water Chemistry Forum and the British Occupational Hygiene Society.


The Environment, Health and Safety Group has associations with the following organisations:

  • RSC Water Chemistry Forum
  • British Occupational Hygiene Society (BOHS)
  • British Standards Insitute (BSI)
  • Water Management Society
  • SCI Agri-Food Hub
