New Institute for Risk and Regulatory Research

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and the University of Manchester (UoM) have committed to launching an Institute for Risk and Regulatory Research.

The new Thomas Ashton Institute will capitalise on the existing strong international credibility of both the University of Manchester and HSE. It will act as a hub for Risk and Regulatory excellence reaching out globally through its educational activities and acting as an authoritative source of health and safety knowledge and expertise.

The Institute will deliver research, training and learning on a national and global stage, and will support HSE and the University of Manchester even further in growing capability and expertise in the management and regulation of risk.

Health and safety practitioners from around the world will be able to learn and benefit from the knowledge and learning opportunities available from the Institute, taking back an enhanced competence to their own countries where it can be used to improve safety and health locally.

One of the key aims of the Institute's work will be to take the lessons learned from four decades of incident investigations and research and making them accessible to industry. The work will help to make sure that mistakes are not repeated as new technologies and industries emerge. Both partners are keen to bring new technologies to fruition safely and more quickly by addressing safety, health and regulatory barriers before they emerge.

The Thomas Ashton Institute will reduce risk, increase assurance and influence the leaders of today and tomorrow to transform the working world in the UK and abroad.
