Home > The news of EUROGIP and occupational risks in Europe > The IOSH launches a call for OSH research proposals

The IOSH (Institution of Occupational Safety and Health) invites researchers to submit proposals with a view to funding high-quality projects to promote occupational safety and health.

Who can apply for funding? Researchers who have recognized high-quality research experience. Candidates need not necessarily have experience in the area of OSH, but must be able to demonstrate how their experience will provide new ideas for the development of occupational safety and health policies and practices. They must also have research and project management skills and the expertise to carry out a selected proposal through to completion.

The proposals shall deal with the following subjects: 

  • Health and well-being
  • Organizational change and OSH performance
  • Sustainable returns from OSH
  • Learning, training methodologies and OSH.

The IOSH is a non-profit organization founded in 1945 which now has 44,000 members in more than 120 countries. From 1945 to 1953, it was a department of the RoSPA. Its goal is to promote OSH via training, and aid for funding research projects which could be useful for OSH policies and their implementation.

The deadline for applying for funding is midnight on Tuesday 15 March 2016.
