Occupational accidents, illness, and fatalities are still a major cause for concern in high- and low-income countries. There is a need to improve working conditions and make workplaces safer, to reduce the number of fatalities, injuries, and diseases, as well as promote and protect psychological wellbeing.
RAND Europe, a not-for-profit research organisation with offices in the UK, has been commissioned by Lloyd’s Register Foundation to conduct a study to better understand the processes of decision making within the context of Occupational Safety and Health (OSH). The focus is especially on how evidence is used, or not used, when taking decisions related to health and safety, at all levels within organisations. By understanding how evidence is used, there are opportunities to make improvements that will lead to better safety outcomes, at a global level.
Evidence here is defined as the available body of facts or information indicating whether a belief or proposition is true or valid.
Why take part?
By completing this questionnaire, you can help us better understand how occupational health and safety decisions are made within organisations, and what role evidence plays in this process.
Completing the questionnaire should take between 10 and 20 minutes.
The survey will close on June 15th 2022 at 23:59.
