Centre for WHS Seeks Projects

Centre for WHS Seeks Projects

The NSW Centre for Work Health and Safety, established 18 months ago, brings together experts in the fields of research, insights and analytics, science outreach and business acumen to collaborate with internal and external stakeholders, industry representatives and the scientific community.

The aim of the Centre is to leverage cutting edge research and data to create awareness, suggest smarter approaches and bring about behaviour change in WHS in NSW, and Australia.

The Centre is looking to partner with industry and businesses toward solving safety problems and creating research based, new and proven safety solutions.

Some of their current and completed projects include:

  • Mental health in remote and rural farming communities
  • Driving Health: National Transport Industry Health and Wellbeing Study
  • Real-time silica detection
  • Developing leadership skills to improve safety culture and machine safety in manufacturing
  • What’s causing electrical harm and what can we do to reduce it?
  • Why are aged care workers still experiencing injuries?
  • And others.

If any of these projects interest you, have a look at their website. http://www.centreforwhs.nsw.gov.au
