A Working Research Agenda for OSH

ASSE, the ASSE Foundation and various stakeholders have established a working research agenda to help focus the decisions of academic, nonprofit and government entities seeking to conduct OSH research. The January 2017 issue of Professional Safety shares highlights of that research agenda, explaining three OSH research focus areas.

OSH research has rarely focused on issues related to the value the profession brings to worker protection or to the value of key concepts underlying OSH practice. By determining that value through research, OSH professionals can better educate themselves, better serve workers and better engage employers.
