ABSTRACT
The Singapore Workplace Safety and Health (WSH) Institute published the first national WSH research priorities agenda as part of its effort to raise the WSH standard in Singapore. This stakeholder-based approach used the modified Delphi method to distill the large amount of stakeholder opinions into a list of focused research priorities. It consisted of interviews, questionnaire and focus group discussions involving all industry sectors. The final list of research priorities were arranged into two broad themes: 1) organizational and business aspects of WSH and 2) WSH risks and solutions. To enhance the true value of research for the WSH landscape, the WSH Institute also put in place a research-to-practice (r2p) framework. This is to ensure that research outcomes will be translated into practical solutions for adoption by the industries. The three components of relevance, translation and effectiveness of the framework will be integrated into all research studies
