Thomas Ashton Institute for Risk and Regulatory Research

Discovering Safety Programme

Discovering Safety logo

Every year, huge amounts of incident investigation findings and operational health and safety data are collected globally.

Delivering health and safety benefits through a data-driven global community

Imagine a world where no one dies as a consequence of work, where industry doesn’t suffer catastrophic failure, where companies can say that no one was harmed in the making of their product and where accidents can be predicted and therefore prevented.

The Lloyd's Register Foundation and the Health and Safety Executive, supported by the Thomas Ashton Institute have jointly developed the Discovering Safety programme. Central to the programme is the development of new techniques to analyse data and aggregate data from sources worldwide, the key output being new learning to help prevent future accidents occurring.

The programme works with industry, academics and governments from the global community, generating bespoke solutions for local contexts, including the challenges faced in developing countries.
