Thomas Ashton Institute for Risk and Regulatory Research

blue square with words training, coaching, learning, knowledge, development and success written in white text

Teaching and Learning, including Continuing Professional Development (CPD)

Accidents and outbreaks of occupational ill health occur in the workplace and lead to significant unplanned downtime, cost increases, and potential prosecution.

These stem from incomplete understanding of scientific, engineering, medical and social factors, leading to failure of systems in the workplace.

To ensure the Institute's research and expertise are widely shared, research programmes are being established alongside the development of training modules and tools for leaders in Health and Safety.

The Institute is developing a new 'Ashton module' for programmes at the University of Manchester: BEng/MEng Civil Engineering and MSc Construction and Engineering Project Management using the NEBOSH standard.
