experienced with scientific, regulatory, and policy aspects of health hazards and
safety risks in environmental, occupational, community, and residential settings.
HHRR is based in Seattle with staff & associates in northern California, southern

We address environmental pollutants, workplace chemicals, pesticides, consumer-product
chemicals, food contaminants, and diagnostic radiation. We develop and evaluate training
programs to reduce workplace risks and promote community preparedness for emergencies
related to chemical hazards, radiation, and bioterror agents.
Sources of toxic air pollutants in the Puget Sound airshed include motor vehicles,
ships, port activities (contributing diesel exhaust), oil refining, heavy industry,
aviation, and seasonal wood burning. Left above: Oil refinery in Anacortes, WA. Left
