Institute of Occupational Safety and Health Grant – Dr Paul Almond

Dr Paul Almond was awarded (along with co-applicant Dr Mike Esbester, University of Portsmouth) a grant of £183,407 by the Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH), for a project entitled ‘The changing legitimacy of health and safety at work’. The research project will address the movement towards a contemporary social climate which is apparently hostile to safety regulation, but within which regulation is also more widespread than in the past. This will run across two years (2013-15) and forms part of IOSH’s ongoing research programme on ‘Health and safety in a changing world’.
