Research and Health and Safety
The need to keep abreast of new and fast changing technologies together with societal concerns about the acceptable level of risk in work activities are the key drivers for new research.
Research is undertaken to help meet many needs - from Governments, from Institutes and Businesses to enable them to further investigate if legislation needs updating, if procedures and systems need to be improved and to investigate any possible health and safety hazards when new materials and products are being introduced into the workplace. Use of nano technologies are an excellent example.
Research plays a key role in:
- Improving our understanding of health and safety risks and how to control them
- Improving our understanding of how people behave and organisations respond to risks
- Supporting enforcement activities e.g. developing analytical techniques
- Ensuring health and safety regulations, standards and guidance are technically sound and cost effective
