Michelle Engelsman is a part-time PhD Candidate and full-time Firefighter based in NSW. Her research study, “Firefighter Exposure Risks and Subsequent Reproductive Effects” is a leading study working directly with Australian Fire Organisations and Firefighters to capture much needed survey and biomonitoring information surrounding exposure risks and reproductive history. The study considers pathways for both chronic and acute exposure, firefighter practices, fire station hygiene, firefighter reproductive history, and firefighter chemical burden. Blood, urine and breast milk samples are being collected and analysed for a range of chemicals firefighters have been found to be occupationally exposed to, and semen will be assessed for quality.
