Our research activities are diverse. We develop and publish a range of freely available outputs from our commissioned research projects.
We are also members of several international research consortiums and act in an advisory capacity on other research projects.
Our research and resources
Our aim is to fund timely and original research that influences policy and practice in the field of occupational safety, health, and wellbeing.
The outputs from our research activities are thus varied. They include a range of reports, evidence-based tools, case studies, checklists and so on.
These reports and resources are freely available in the IOSH resource library.
We commission a range of projects to establish evidence for health and safety policies and practice. Our research has focused on a broad range of industries and has explored topics such as:
- health and wellbeing - key elements of successful interventions
- organisational change
- OSH performance and reporting
- learning and training methodologies.
Historically, we have been particularly interested in research which, where possible, leads to the development of practical resources (e.g., guidance, tools, or case studies) that are useful to the workplace.
How we work with other organisations
Alongside our own commissioned research, we are also involved in occupational safety and health research in a number of different ways. We sponsor, support, and provide advice for other organisations conducting research projects.
