Key research topics in this field are HSE, organisational safety, complexity, the significance of confidence for safety and the development of good, reliable measuring tools for HSE.
In 2015 we researched into:
- The project “Safety culture, working health and accidents in Norwegian agriculture” has found that Norwegian farmers approach the prevention of accidents by means of practical measures. On the other hand the results show that establishing systems for HSE activities appears to be more of a challenge, since such systems are perceived as the mandatory requirements of the authorities and require resources and assistance from outside in order to establish a connection between such systems and practice.*
- A project for the Norwegian State Housing Bank shows that strategies that are intended to contribute to coordination across agencies and units in the public sector are being challenged by the fact that these agencies have different cognitive understanding of the tasks, which could result in less coordinated behaviour in problem solving.
