Environmental laboratories combine advanced technology and experienced researchers to deliver analytical data on biological, ecological and physical sciences, as well as a range of diverse engineering fields. The environmental testing services performed at an environmental laboratory include analysis of water, soil, air, waste characterization, energetics and explosives, contaminants, and other environmental forensics. This type of testing requires qualified experts who are able to assist in the development of analytical protocols, environmental sampling and analysis.
Lab workers in an environmental lab are charged with performing comprehensive analytical research with environmental assessment, evaluation and engineering capabilities. Labs are expected to conform to a national standard and provide a high quality of research on subjects such as drinking water, surface water, waste water, sediment, air, fish, soil and hazardous waste. Environmental labs will sometimes also do research in the technical areas of general chemistry, metals chemistry, organic chemistry, radiation chemistry and water microbiology.
An environmental laboratory includes a staff of lab technicians that are specially trained in testing for contaminants that affect the environment and human and wildlife health. They can work under a number of different titles, such as environmental technician, environmental specialist, lab specialist or environmental health specialist. These technicians have been specially trained to work with test samples of soils, water, gases and other materials to isolate pollutant levels or other sources of contamination. They are typically directed by environmental scientists or engineers who analyze their work and use results to develop new procedures for environmental cleanup or to recommend new policies.
