Jericho, NY – June 4, 2018 – J.S. Held today announced the acquisition of Applied Environmental Health & Safety (AEHS), as part of a strategic move to strengthen environmental, health, and safety (EHS) services in the southeast and Caribbean in preparation for an above average storm season.
Based in Titusville, Florida, AEHS is a respected consulting firm, providing expert environmental, industrial hygiene, indoor air quality, OSHA and EPA compliance, and safety training services throughout the state.

“The acquisition of AEHS will absolutely benefit our clients throughout Florida and the Caribbean,” said Jon Held, President and Chief Executive Officer of J.S. Held. “With the addition of this outstanding team of EHS professionals and specialists, our regional clients will see quicker response times for critical assignments. This will be crucial for the upcoming 2018 storm season.”
AEHS will join the Environmental, Health & Safety Services division of J.S. Held, which is led by Executive Vice President, Tracey Dodd.
“We are excited to welcome AEHS to the J.S. Held team at this pressing time,” said Tracey Dodd, Executive Vice President. “As we prepare for a stronger storm season, the addition of these licensed and certified environmental scientists, industrial hygienists, and field technicians will increase our level of service for clients at a national level.”
AEHS will join the J.S. Held team of over 400 consultants. Existing AEHS clients will now have access to a broader range of services, as J.S. Held specializes in construction consulting, property damage assessment, surety services, project and program management, engineering consulting, and environmental, health, and safety services.
