I was thrilled when I started working for ERG and found that I could apply my passion for environmental and occupational health by working for government agencies that promote and protect the health of individuals, workers, and the environment. This nexus has allowed me to pursue incredibly interesting work across myriad health-related topics and to help my clients plan, develop, and implement successful programs and initiatives.
Arlene Levin, an ERG vice president, leads ERG’s environmental and occupational health practice—a multidisciplinary team of industrial hygienists, occupational safety and health specialists, safety professionals, public health scientists, engineers, epidemiologists, toxicologists, and environmental scientists, and biologists. She has managed dozens of contracts for federal clients, including the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
Arlene has more than 30 years of experience in occupational safety and health, facility management, emergency response, environmental compliance, municipal and hazardous waste management, risk assessments, and environmental science. As ERG’s Corporate Health and Safety Officer, she is responsible for the health and safety of over 500 employees, including those who work in office settings, in the field, and at ERG’s analytical laboratory in North Carolina.
Arlene holds a B.A. in biology and a B.S. in medical technology from the University of Pennsylvania, as well as an M.P.H. in environmental health sciences from Columbia University School of Public Health. Between college and graduate school, she worked as a microbiologist at a Boston hospital for Conan O’Brien’s father. In her spare time, she enjoys biking, reading, and baking.
