Theme presentations

This free showcase will kick-off with a morning of presentations exploring the 6 research themes of the Institute:

    Understanding the interdependency between activities that make up our complex work environments so they are designed and managed to be safer and more resilient.
  • Safer infrastructures: 
    How to continuously improve the safety and resilience of new and existing infrastructures and industries.
  • Social change and inequalities: 
    How improvements in health and safety can support societal changes to the way work is undertaken.
  • Work and health 
    How work and health outcomes are intimately interlinked, and what interventions can improve health outcomes.

Research presentations

After a complimentary lunch, the afternoon will include presentations from senior and early career researchers; we aim to display a varied cross-section of the research that is happening within the Institute at The University of Manchester.
