Speaker: Professor Anne Steinemann

Topic: Hidden hazards in everyday products and indoor environments

Contrary to popular belief, most of our exposure to hazardous pollutants occurs in places we consider safe—our indoor environments, such as homes, schools, and workplaces. Primary sources of these pollutants are also considered safe—our everyday consumer products, such as cleaning supplies, air fresheners, and personal care products. However, indoor air environments are generally unregulated, and consumer products are not required to disclose all ingredients. Even so-called “green” products can emit hazardous pollutants, similar to regular products. Professor Steinemann will discuss the hidden hazards in our consumer products and indoor environments, and offer practical solutions.

Anne Steinemann is Professor of Civil Engineering and Chair of Sustainable Cities, Department of Infrastructure Engineering, Melbourne School of Engineering. She is also a Visiting Scholar at St Mary’s College. Professor Steinemann is internationally recognised for her research on indoor air quality, consumer product emissions, and exposure assessment. She serves as adviser to governments and industries around the world, and her work has resulted in new federal and state legislation, agency policies, and industry practices. In addition to academic recognition, Professor Steinemann’s research and journal articles have received significant international media coverage, spanning more than 1,000 major newspapers, magazines, and broadcast stations across six continents. Before coming to Australia, Professor Steinemann was Program Manager at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, University of California, San Diego; Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering, and Professor of Public Affairs, at the University of Washington; and Associate Professor at the Georgia Institute of Technology. She received her PhD in Civil and Environmental Engineering from Stanford University.
