The very first Government Chemist was appointed in Western Australia to address a pressing public health and safety issue – the incorrect handling of explosives used in mineral exploration.
Now, 120 years later, our public health and safety experts continue to ensure the State is safeguarded from chemical risks to community health and safety, supporting government agencies with chemical risk assessment expertise and quality testing services.
We work with government agencies and industry to supply comprehensive analyses to assess chemical risk and manage resources.
Our public health and safety assessments, results and reports (with thorough, defensible information guaranteed by our scientists) allow our clients to address community concerns and manage any potential chemical risk that may impact on the public and the environment.
