IOSH invited researchers to submit proposals for high quality research that will support them, and their stakeholders, in providing an evidence base for effective OSH (occupational safety and health) research

Deadline: March 25, 2015

Website: www.iosh.co.uk/researchcomp

The Research Committee will consider proposals that aim to support IOSH's vision of a world of work which is safe, healthy and sustainable. However, they are particularly interested in:

  • OSH Practitioner demonstrations – this year IOSH is particularly keen to receive bids from researchers that intend to engage OSH practitioners as part of their field work. We would like to see practical high quality links between research and practice. Making use of working professionals to address real world problems.
  • Non UK projects. IOSH would welcome applications where the study topic is not UK based. For example any project focusing on the needs of practitioners across the globe. Or that addresses emerging problems internationally.
  • Evidence based research on health and safety performance on major construction projects, such as joint ventures, which also addresses safety culture in project partners.
  • Evidence based research on health and safety risks associated with healthcare provision in the NHS whether primary, secondary or tertiary care or related services such as ambulance provision. A focus on organisational change and impact on health and safety risks.
  • What constitutes good transitional arrangements during organisational change, so that health and safety arrangements are not jeopardized and harm does not arise?
  • How does culture within society in general influence how health and safety practitioners see and discharge their duties? How does the culture, experience and background of practitioners influence how they see and discharge their duties?
