Air Quality:

An air quality specialist is a scientist who tests and analyzes the air quality of a specific environment, such as a factory, power plant, or municipality. As an air quality specialist, your job duties can also involve enforcing regulations for vehicle emissions or factory pollution to maintain air quality standards. To become an air quality specialist, you typically need a bachelor’s degree in a field such as environmental science, biology, or chemistry. Your skills and experience should include the ability to collect samples, analyze data, and perform both simple and complex lab tests on samples. Strong communication skills are also essential in this career. Air quality specialists often work in the field to interview and discuss air quality issues with companies and government officials, along with making presentations or recommendations based on their findings.

Emergency Preparedness & Response:

Emergencies can create a variety of hazards for workers in the impacted area. Preparing before an emergency incident plays a vital role in ensuring that employers and workers have the necessary equipment, know where to go, and know how to keep themselves safe when an emergency occurs. These Emergency Preparedness and Response pages provide information on how to prepare and train for emergencies and the hazards to be aware of when an emergency occurs. The pages provide information for employers and workers across industries, and for workers who will be responding to the emergency.

Energy Technology & Services:

efore a government strategy to address the opportunities and challenges to environmental technology exports can be developed, a common definition of the environmental technology industry must be established. This is particularly important for environmental technologies, since the term could include any permutation of goods and services that might fall under the nebulous category of being environmentally friendly or beneficial. In practice, producers of environmental technologies have a clear definition for their sector. From an industry perspective, environmental technologies are defined as all industrial goods and services that: Foster environmental protection and physical resource efficiency in industrial settings; Generate compliance with environmental regulations; Prevent or mitigate pollution; Manage or reduce waste streams; Remediate contaminated sites; Design, develop and operate environmental infrastructure; and Afford the provision and delivery of environmental resources.
