Research and Projects

Through its research, Prevent collects relevant and up-to-date knowledge from Belgium and abroad relating to occupational risks and the prevention of work-related accidents and health problems. Prevent translates this knowledge into practice, so that well-being at work can be improved in a scientifically grounded way. The research is geared to answering questions such as: 
  • How are working conditions and the social, economic and cultural contexts developing?
  • What are the trends?
  • What are the new and emerging risks? 
  • Are there scientifically grounded safety strategies (good practices) to control the risks?
For these research activities, Prevent works closely with other institutes and organisations in Belgium and aborad.
