Environmental Toxicology is the study of the effectiveness of chemicals on human health and the environment. By relating the principles of biology and chemistry, toxicologists can study the toxic responses of man-made and natural chemicals. Using this knowledge, researchers can predict where chemicals will end up in the environment and in our bodies, determine what toxic impacts chemicals have and create exposure limits to keep us and our environment healthy.

Ecotoxicology is the study of contaminants in the environment and their effects on constituents of the environment. It is an interdisciplinary field that draws from knowledge and techniques in the fields of ecology and toxicology to study the effects of toxic chemical or biological agents on biological organisms at the population, community or ecosystem level. It is distinguished from toxicology because it focuses on the impacts of chemicals on ecological groupings of organisms rather than on individuals; i.e. on populations, communities and ecosystems. Contaminant chemical form, phase association and movement among components of the biosphere are central issues in ecotoxicology.

Occupational toxicology is concerned with the harmful effects of agents that may be encountered by workers during the course of their employment. The harmful effects may be in the workers themselves, or in experimental animals, or other test systems used to define and/or understand the toxicity of the agent of interest. The term ‘occupational’ is used in preference to ‘industrial’ because the latter may have the connotation of chemical exposure in factories; this would not necessarily include work such as farming, with potential exposure to pesticides or office work, with issues such as photocopiers in enclosed spaces.

Aquatic toxicology is the investigation of the impacts of made chemicals and other anthropogenic and natural materials and undertakings on oceanic living beings at different levels of association, from subcellular through individual living beings to groups and ecosystems. This field of study incorporates freshwater, marine water and sediment environments. Oceanic toxicologists think about unfriendly impacts at various spatial, temporal, and organizational scales. Since aquatic systems contain a great many animal categories, each of these species can react to toxicants from numerous points of view, and collaborations between these species can be influenced.

Toxicology studies are frequently required by regulatory agencies to state the adverse effects of a chemical product and to guarantee that it meets the standards for safety that the agency prescribes. Regulatory toxicologists impart guidance and recommendations to risk assessors, risk managers, and policy makers on matters associated to human health risks from chemical and pharmaceutical substances. Regulatory toxicology comprises the study of toxicity profile that is compared with other known toxicants. They then establish standards for allowable limits that are consistent with other agents and with similar effects. Regulatory toxicology works as the major centre for laws that limit exposures for people and environment.

Risk Assessment refers to characterizing the nature and extent of health hazards to individuals and biological receptors from chemical pollutants and other stressors that may be present in the atmosphere. Risk assessor estimates the occurrence and extent of human and ecological exposures that may happen as a result of contact with the tainted medium. This assessment of exposure is then united with information on the intrinsic toxicity of the chemical to predict the possibility, nature and magnitude of the antagonistic health effects that may occur.

Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) is a hypernym for the laws, rules, guidance and routes intended to care workforces, the public and the environment from harm. In the workstation, the accountabilities for planning and applying suitable procedures is often allocated to a particular department, often called the "HSE" department which is responsible for environmental safety, occupational health and safety at workstation. HSE management has two general objectives: prevention of accidents that might effect from irregular operational circumstances and decrease of dangerous effects that result from normal operating conditions.

Waste management is the precise name for the gathering, transportation, disposal or recycling and monitoring of waste. This term is given to the material, waste material that is produced through human being activity. This material is managed to avoid its harmful effect over human health and environment. Most of the time, waste is managed to get resources from it. The waste to be managed contains all forms of matter i.e. gaseous, liquid, solid and radioactive matter. The technique for the management of waste may differ for developed and developing nations. For urban and rural populations, industrial and residential zones it does differ as well. The management of waste in metropolitan and rural areas is general responsibility of the native government. While the waste that is produced by the industries is managed by the industry itself, in case it is non-hazardous.
