Health and Product Safety

Offre Sante 140x120SOCOTEC has developed a health and product safety offering for European and international markets to help companies, particularly manufacturers, meet their challenges.
The offering covers health impacts related to chemicals, in the broadest sense of the word: basic chemicals, intermediates, active pharmaceutical ingredients (API), biocides, phyto-pharmaceutical products, cosmetics, mixtures and chemicals in articles.

Product safety, occupational health and environmental health have become strategic issues for companies in terms of protecting the health of people and the environment, as well as from economic, legal and image impacts.
Through its specialist team, headed by Dr Patrick Lévy, who joined the Group in June 2014, SOCOTEC supports companies by helping them to develop risk assessment and management by anticipating long-term impacts and by converting constraints into opportunities for innovation.
