IOSH begins study into health and safety

24th September 2013 | Health and Safety Signs

The Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) is researching how the public believes health and safety regulation has changed in the last 50 years.

Lasting two years, the project will include interviews with key stakeholders, former regulators, politicians, policymakers, workers and trade union safety representatives. Other individuals who have played an active role in the law will also be questioned.

Focus groups will analyse public attitudes towards health and safety regulation, while evaluating and examining the changing representations of it over time.

Dr Mike Esbester, from the University of Portsmouth’s School of Social, Historical and Literary Studies and the project’s co-investigator, said: "This is a great opportunity to look back at what has changed and why, and to identify the turning points in public perceptions of health and safety in recent years."

Mr Esbester explained that he wants to see how past policies influence the present, which could point to potential safety changes in the future.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801641312-ADNFCR
