The National Research Centre for Occupational Health and Safety Regulation (NRCOHSR) is a research centre within the Regulatory Institutions Network, in the Research School of Social Sciences, at the Australian National University. The Centre is funded by the National Occupational Health and Safety Commission (NOHSC).The Centre was established to conduct high quality, empirical and policy-focused research into OHS regulation, consistent with the National Occupational Health and Safety Strategy: 2002-2012. This research will inform government initiatives to reform OHS legislation, and contribute to measures to ensure its effectiveness and efficiency in implementation, and its positive impact on improving OHS outcomes in Australian organisations and workplaces. The Centre facilitates and promotes groups of collaborating researchers conducting empirical and policy-focused research into OHS regulation in each of the States and Territories. To this end, the Centre is supporting a National OHS Regulatory Research Consortium.
