Department of Environmental Management and Toxicology

This Department is also concerned with the description and monitoring of environmental changes, with predicting future changes and with attempts to maximise human benefit and to minimise environmental degradation due to human activities. We also study how toxic chemicals affect organisms and the environment. Blue Gate Initiative collect and test samples to determine the presence and amount of contaminants, and study how they got there. We provide test tissue samples, water, air, or food. We also conduct laboratory experiments to determine the effects of a toxin at various concentrations.

It is important to note that we need safe, healthy and supportive environments for good health. The environment in which we live is a major determinant of our health and wellbeing. We depend on the environment for energy and the materials needed to sustain life, such as:

  • clean air
  • safe drinking water
  • nutritious food
  • safe places to live.
  • Many aspects of our environment – both built and natural environment – can impact on our health. It’s important that we interpret health issues in the wider context of our environment and where we live
