Summary of Activities

Dr. Teaf received a BS degree (Biology) from Penn State University and an MS degree (Biological Science) from Florida State University, with emphasis on marine systems. He earned a Ph.D. (Toxicology) from the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences and conducted his research at the Division of Genetic Toxicology, National Center for Toxicological Research (Jefferson, AR). Areas of research and professional activity include: toxicological risk assessment for human exposure to occupational and environmental chemicals under requirements of OSHA, CERCLA, SARA, RCRA, TSCA, and related state or federal legislation; modification of mutagenicity by environmental factors, effects of drugs and alcohol, male reproductive toxicology, aquatic toxicology, and evaluation of impact of waste management facilities in wet environments. Dr. Teaf has served as peer reviewer for Human & Ecological Risk Assessment, Environmental Toxicology & Chemistry, Bulletin of Marine Science, Ohio Journal of Science, Chemosphere and Environmental Biology of Fishes, as well as for reviews of research submitted to the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR). He has directed or conducted research for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA), U.S. Department of Agriculture, Florida Department of Labor, Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP), Florida Department of Health (FDOH), Florida Department of Community Affairs, and Florida Marine Patrol. He served as toxicologist to the Governor’s Financial and Technical Advisory Committee from 1986 to 1992, and as toxicologist for the state Landfill Technical Advisory Group for several years. He presently serves as the toxicologist for the state Petroleum Underground Storage Tanks Technical Advisory Committee. He was Co-chair of the Human Health Committee, Florida Comparison of Environmental Risks Project, a cooperative study funded by USEPA, FDEP and other agencies. He served as Chair of the Toxic Substances Advisory Council for the Florida Department of Labor, which oversees the Florida Right-to-Know Law. Dr. Teaf is the toxicologist and served as Vice-Chair of the District 2 Local Emergency Planning Committee for the State Hazardous Materials Emergency Response Commission. From 1986 to 1989, he was liaison between the State University System of Florida Toxicological Research Coordinating Committee and FDEP. Dr. Teaf has served on graduate committees for candidates at Florida A&M University and Georgia Institute of Technology.

Dr. Teaf has taught graduate and undergraduate courses at Florida State University, Florida A&M University and the University of Florida. He has organized and participated in seminars and multi-day training courses for presentation to groups including: World Health Organization, USEPA, U.S. Department of Agriculture, FDOH, Florida Engineering Society, Florida Bar Association, FDEP, Florida Department of Education, Florida Chamber of Commerce, National Conference on Waste Exchange and Resource Reuse, National Hazardous Materials Training Center, and Georgia Institute of Technology. He served on the Advisory Committee for MGP ’95 (International Symposium and Trade Fair on the Cleanup of Manufactured Gas Plants), held in the Czech Republic. Presentations include those for NASA (1998 Occupational Heath Conference), NATO (comparison of risk assessment for chemical and radiological sites), the First (1992), Second (1994), Third (1996) and Fourth (1998) and Fifth (2000)
International Symposia on Environmental Contamination in Central and Eastern Europe (human health evaluations and risk assessments for contaminated sites), Florida Bar Association (risk assessment principles, procedures, applications in environmental/occupational cases), American Bar Association (development, presentation of toxicological information in litigation) and ATSDR/Florida DOH (toxicology for physicians, e.g. pesticides, mercury, petroleum constituents, solvents).

Dr. Teaf’s experience includes positions of Associate Director, FSU Center for Biomedical & Toxicological Research and Hazardous Waste Management since 1983, and Director of Toxicology for HSWMR, Inc. since 1985 (President since 1989). From 1980 to 1982 he served as Research Staff for the Governor’s Hazardous Waste Policy Advisory Council. He has provided consulting services on toxicology, environmental and human health risk assessment, hazardous waste management, recycling, water quality, and occupational health/safety, particularly regarding OSHA Hazard Communication Standard, Florida Right-to-Know Law and federal requirements under RCRA, CERCLA, and TSCA or related state regulations, including CERCLA cost allocations. He has provided services to the U.S. Attorney, Florida Attorney General, Washington Attorney General and Florida State Attorney. Dr. Teaf has testified on environmental issues, alcohol/drugs, occupational exposures, chemical health effects, and toxicological risk assessment to regulatory, legislative and judicial bodies.
