Coal Services Health & Safety Trust 2016 Research Grants
Formed in 1991, The Coal Services Health & Safety Trust supports the Australian coal mining industry by funding projects and research that will have a positive effect on the health and safety of coal mine workers, operators and the wider mining community. A three-stage application process is in place for Health and Safety Trust Grants. The Trust is now calling for Stage 1 Expressions of Interest. Since the Trust's inception, research has been targeted around specific priority areas. These priority areas have been based on relevant statistical information on accident and injury trends within the coal industry and also on areas where minimal research currently exists.
Priority areas for the Trust are:
- Diesel particulates
- Musculoskeletal disorders
- RSI prevention, treatment and management
- High pressure oil injection injuries
- Mental health
The Trust assesses all potential projects against two broad criteria: (i) How attractive the project is to the coal industry with respect to the project's feasibility; & (ii) The proposed project's ability to provide tangible outcomes in partnership with the industry.
