Development of capacities to extract health and safety insights from free-text sources

As recent developments in text mining, natural language processing and machine learning are becoming more mainstream, the task of generating data driven insights and learning from health and safety operational intelligence, particularly from

Data

Health and safety performance benchmarking

Organisations generate a wealth of routine health and safety data as part of day-to-day operations that provide a useful proxy measure of how well they manage their health and safety risks as an organisation.

Leading indicators of health and safety failures project

Much industry guidance has been published over recent years, specific to different industry contexts, on how to better use leading indicators of health and safety performance to support assessments of the adequacy of workplace risk control m

Product safety

Product safety intelligence

Mass manufactured products are used by both consumers (public) and industrial users for work activities.

Construction

Construction risk knowledge management using BIM

Building Information Modelling (BIM) supports the digitisation of asset build projects and uses information relating to the asset of interest to build a three dimensional model with supporting intelligent, structured data attached. 

Diving Equipment

Diving

Diving is known to be a high risk activity where the worker is in an environment that is hostile to normal human existence and requires a life support system and knowledge of physiological limitations to be able to carry out
