CCWHSR conducts applied research with industry partners in the construction and property industries to analyse organisational work health and safety performance.
The mission of the Centre for Construction Work Health and Safety Research (CCWHSR) is to bring together researchers, including academic staff and Higher Degree by Research (HDR) students, to collaborate in a program of industry-focused research to improve the health and safety of workers in the construction sector.
The Centre’s research is undertaken with the aim of significantly reducing the number of workers who are harmed in the course of their employment in the construction industry.
Translating research into practice
Members of the CCWHSR conduct research in close collaboration with industry stakeholders. Members place an emphasis on the translation of research outputs into industry practice and have a strong track record in producing useable, practical tools that can be adapted and adopted for use by industry. It is important to our members that our research makes a difference.
