What is Environment, Health, and Safety?
Environment, Health, and Safety is a discipline and specialty that studies and implements practical aspects of environmental protection and safety at work.
- E-Environment (Related to pollution, waste, air quality, green, sustainability).
- H-Health (Related to toxicology, exposure, disease, forensic, CSI).
- S- Safety (Related to incident, accident, explosion, physical hazards, etc.).
Environmental protection is a process of protecting the natural environment on the individual, organization or governmental levels to benefit both the natural environment and humans. Due to the pressures of population and technology, the biophysical environment is being degraded, sometimes permanently. This has been recognized, and governments have begun placing restraints on activities that cause environmental degradation.
Since the 1960s, the activity of environmental movements has created awareness of the various environmental issues. However, there is no agreement on the extent of the ecological impact of human activity, and protection measures are occasionally criticized.
Academic institutions now offer courses, such as environmental studies, environmental management and environmental engineering, that teach the history and methods of environment protection. Protection of the environment is needed due to various human activities. Waste production, air pollution, and loss of biodiversity (resulting from the introduction of invasive species and species extinction) are issues related to environmental protection.
Three interwoven factors influence environmental protection:
- Environmental Legislation
Each of these factors plays its part in influencing national-level environmental decisions and personal-level environmental values and behaviors. Therefore, for environmental protection to become a reality, societies need to develop each of these areas that, together, will inform and drive environmental decisions.
