S.M.A.R.T. (Safety Management and Applied Research Team)
The S.M.A.R.T. team takes a novel approach to promotion of safety and health in the workplace. Our applied research focuses on important human and psychological factors, which aim to complement existing physical and regulatory facets of safety management. We achieve this objective from a multidisciplinary viewpoint with our team of researchers from psychology, ergonomics, and construction management.
