Industry Advisory Group

The Centre’s research activities are guided by a tripartite Industry Advisory Group (IAG) that meets quarterly. The IAG advises on industry issues, contributes to the development of the Centre’s research programme and helps to disseminate research results to a broader industry audience. The IAG plays an important role in ensuring the work we do remains closely connected to industry.

International linkages

The Centre for Construction Work Health and Safety Research is part of an international network of researchers based at universities in the United States, Europe and Asia. Through collaboration with international research partners, knowledge is disseminated internationally and best practice will be transferred between continents and countries.

Researchers within the Centre collaborate with researchers from the Center for Occupational Safety and Health (USA) and the European Construction Institute (UK). Centre researchers also participate actively in the International Council for Research and Innovation in the Building and Construction (CIB) W099 Working Commission on Safety and Health in Construction.
