Research impact case studies

In order to gauge the impact of its research, the Institute for Work & Health tracks and reports on the uptake and use of its research by stakeholders within the health and safety system. One way we gauge impact is through case studies, which tell the story of how research informed the activities of particular stakeholders.

Case studies written since 2009 are included here, in order of their publication date (from most recent to oldest). They are also each assigned a “type,” based on the case study framework used by IWH to describe the impact of its research (see IWH research impact model).

Type 3: Evidence of societal impact

Type 2: Evidence of research informing decision-making

Type 1: Evidence of the diffusion of research
